Brian O'Driscoll believes back-to-back wins over England and Wales have served as a great response to the heavy defeat Ireland suffered in Paris.

"We played very well, clinically, and took our chances," said the Ireland skipper who won his 100th cap in the 27-12 win over Wales in at Croke Park.

"Croke has been a brilliant place for us and losing here to Wales two years ago wounded us. We have put that right.

"We now have the Triple Crown to play for and maybe even the Championship."

Ireland complete their Six Nations campaign at home to Scotland on Saturday, 20 March.

O'Driscoll became the 13th player to become an international rugby centurion when he led Ireland out for the 63rd time.

"That was a different feeling, probably more emotional than I thought it would be," he said.

"It was a fantastic feeling and it's a massive, massive honour to have played for my country 100 times.

"The reception on the way out was an extra on winning the game."
