BOD met the greatest ever Sevens magician and impressed him with an audacious bit of skill

This is the sort of thing we miss in his retirement.

IF YOU ARE an Irish rugby fan, chances are that you worship Brian O’Driscolll. His achievements are very well known in this country but many supporters might not be overly familiar with Fiji’s BOD equivalent, Waisale Serevi.

Serevi was a famous sevens genius and although he played the 15-man game too, his exploits in the the former outstrip his accomplishments in the latter.

Brian O’Driscoll met up with the Fijian at the Hong Kong Sevens and while he doesn’t quite have the maestro’s array of tricks in his arsenal, he did bust out one nice piece of skill.

BOD might be selling his rugby skill a bit short though. This effort from the Lions tour in 2013 is pretty good, complete with poignant music that will likely makes his fans despair over Warren Gatland’s decision all over again.
