Gallery: Ten of the best pictures from Brian O'Driscoll's international career
Ahead of Brian O’Driscoll becoming the most capped player in international test rugby this weekend, the lads at Inpho Photography have decided a tribute is in order. And what a fitting tribute it is.
Assuming he plays against Italy this weekend in what will be his last ever home international and his second last appearance in an Ireland jersey, O’Driscoll will overtake Australian legend George Gregan as the most capped international player when he plays in what will be his 140th test match.
It really is an astonishing statistic and a credit to his incredible durability considering the punishment he has put his body through over the years and we’re sure the crowd at the Aviva on Saturday will be very vocal in their appreciation of probably our best ever player.
Ahead of such a momentous occasion, the folks at Inpho Photography have trawled through the archives to come up with 100 of O’Driscoll’s best pictures from his international career (see the collection in full here) and we picked out ten of our favourites, some of them absolute gems that we had never set eyes on before.
What a career and what a player; we’re sure going to miss him when he’s gone.
