The trailer for the new Shoulder to Shoulder documentary, starring Brian O'Driscoll has been released as BT Sport confirmed it will premiere at 10pm on Friday, 12 October.
The programme will see former Irish captain Brian O'Driscoll explore how rugby united Ireland. Since his retirement, O'Driscoll has worked with BT Sport as a pundit and it emerged that he was partaking in this project earlier this year when photographs of him attending the July 12 public holiday in Northern Ireland emerged online.

The Ireland national rugby team is different from its football one in that it represents the island of Ireland. As a unit, they have managed to thrive and the programme aims to uncover how. "When you put on that green jersey, for that eighty minutes, it doesn't matter where you are from" declared current captain Rory Best.
It will air on BT Sport 2 next month.
