During RTÉ's highlights of Ireland's 35-21 win against Wales at the Millennium Stadium, Shane Horgan focused on one of the less obvious elements which Joe Schmidt has added to Ireland's attacking armoury.
Horgan explained that Joe Schmidt calls it 'animation'. It's the act of feigning as if you are going to receive the ball in order to gain the attention of an opposition defender.
When you're not getting the ball, you're animating to make the opposition think you're getting the ball.
We know that O'Donnell was doing it correctly because Tipuric bit down.
You'll very often that there's lots of animation going on. There's lots of bodies moving around the place.
It's not because they've nothing else to do or they feel like wandering around. They're doing it to try and interest another defender.
