The Welsh Rugby Union’s incredibly classy letter to Brian O’Driscoll to mark his world record appearance

Of all the tributes paid to the great man over the weekend, this just might be the best.

The weekend just passed turned into something of a love-in for Ireland’s greatest ever player and fittingly, he marked the occasion with a brilliant, man of the match performance in Ireland’s comprehensive win over Italy at the Aviva Stadium.

O’Driscoll was the subject of an overwhelming number of tributes in newspapers, on television and, of course, in the Aviva itself on Saturday, but perhaps the most fitting one of all came in a letter from the Welsh Rugby Union, which O’Driscoll shared on his Twitter page yesterday.

 

A classy, classy touch.
