Brian O’Driscoll added another piece of silver in an already considerable collection, and the man with whom he partook the Irish leadership for much of the past ten years left Murrayfield for the very last time on a Six Nations evening with the championship title, a winner’s medal across his neck as well as the extolments of his coach ringing in his ears.
For Paul O’Connell, it was his 101st cap while his 51st cap in Six Nations tournament. He has a contract with the Irish board till 2016’s June but has hinted that a celebrated Test career could finish after this autumn’s World Cup. It is certain that he has said he anticipated any appearance in autumn at Twickenham to be his very last.
When it was asked by titanbet, O’Connell said that he does not know if this it. It has been great 8 weeks. It is great to win a championship in any era. He added that if it does finish then it is a good way to finish and if it doesn’t finish it will be a great memory to have.
He told that he has spent a lot of years in close calls, and they would be very proud of what they have done in the past 8 weeks, in terms of how they have addressed certain things in their performance, in defense, attack and their resolve to come out and produce a good performance like that after losing last week.
