Now though, we've got 13 of the best Brian O'Driscoll tries ever.

3rd try vs France, 2000

Ireland beat France for the 1st time in Paris in 28 years back in March 2000. BOD was the inspiration, scoring a hat-trick of tries. This was his 3rd of the game.

(Forward to 1.05)

1st Lions test vs Australia, 2001

A sensational try for the Lions against the Aussies, featuring some searing pace and a lovely sidestep.


Vs Scotland 2002 Six Nations

Showing those great hands, O'Driscoll picked the ball up at pace to run it in from his inside own 22 against the Scots.

Vs Australia, 2003 World Cup pool stage

In the corner to put Ireland back in the game during the 2003 World Cup pool stage. Jim Sherwin on commentary.

Vs Italy 2004 Six Nations

A mazy run against Italy.

Vs France, 2005 Six Nations

Giving Ireland hope against the French at Lansdowne.

Vs Toulouse 2006 Heineken Cup quarter-final

O'Driscoll scores Leinster's first try against the defending Heineken Cup champions Toulouse in that memorable 41-35 win which set up a semi-final against Munster.



Vs Wasps, 2008/9 Heineken Cup group stages

Beautiful improvised chip and chase against Wasps in October 2008.

Vs France, 2009 Six Nations

Grand Slam year. Great break against the French at Croke Park.

Vs Munster, 2008/9 Heineken Cup semi-final

Breaking Munster's backs with an intercept try at Croker.


Vs Munster, 2009/10 Magners League

Six months after that Heineken Cup semi-final win, Leinster spanked Munster in the Magners League. O'Driscoll broke despairing Munster tackles to touch down just after half-time.

Vs Brive, 2009/10 Heineken Cup group stages

Shaggy and BOD with an almost telepathic link to secure a late Heineken Cup group stage bonus point.

Vs New Zealand 2010 November Internationals

A brilliant pickup of a loose ball and dive over the line against the All Blacks.
