    This thread should be a statement not a question, without a shadow of a doubt he is the greatest player ever to wear the green. I'm still flabbergasted that Harrington was voted best Irish sports person ever, O'Driscoll was robbed

    I am in agreement - he is the best ever - I admire the way he has adjusted his game/style over the past few years. Not only is he good in attack he puts his body on the line for the team and pound for pound he is one of the fiercest tacklers out there.

    But for injury - and a complete lack of talent/ambition - it could have been me.

    Oh well.

    O'Driscoll's a titan.
