O’Driscoll has led his team as captain in a staggering 83 tests, including leading Ireland to their first Grand Slam in 60 years in 2009.

Brian holds the Six Nations record for most tries scored with 26. He has scored the most Heineken Cup tries (30) for an Irishman. In 2008, Brian received the ‘Dubliner of the Year Award’ from The Dubliner magazine and in 2010 he was voted “Player of the Decade” by the magazine Rugby World.
