GIF: O’Driscoll genius opens up Samoan defence

Up until this moment, we only had a rolling maul to crow about.

FOR 45 MINUTES of Ireland’s opening November Test against Samoa, there wasn’t a whole lot to cheer about.

Fortunately, Brian O’Driscoll gave us this moment of magic to set up Sean O’Brien’s try.


Paddy Jackson’s back-spinning kick caught out Brando Va’aulu, but with O’Driscoll taking the ball up he thought he had wrapped the former captain up.

Now you see it, now you don’t.


We’ll miss BOD when he’s gone, y’know.
