O'Driscoll's fast track to success
Around the Academy:

Brian O'Driscoll beats Australian winger Andrew Walker over the try line
Brian scores the famous Lions try in Brisbane

Brian O'Driscoll has already achieved more than most rugby players manage in a lifetime.

The fleet-footed centre was installed as Ireland captain for the recent Six Nations.

He previously led his country in their memorable 18-9 victory against Australia in the Autumn.

That was not his first bruising experience against the defending world champions.

O'Driscoll was a key part of the Lions side that played three epic matches Down Under in the summer of 2001.

Yet he recognises the need to keep achieving and progress as a rugby player both with Leinster and Ireland, and more than likely on the next Lions tour as well.

He reveals all to the Sport Academy.
