The most capped player in international history with 141 appearances for Ireland. 46 tries for his country. Two Six Nations titles including a Grand Slam. Three Heineken Cups. Four Lions tours. The list of Brian O'Driscoll's achievements is lengthy.
His former Leinster teammate Nathan Hines may have found a blemish on the great man's record though - he's listed as the Six Nation's worst drop kicker with a success rate of 16.67%.

Brian explained the record by saying they were all taken with the safety net of a penalty advantage.

That single drop goal? Against England in 2009. A crucial one it was too.
