Watch: Sound Man Brian O'Driscoll Calls Leinster Fan To Talk Rugby

While football is slowly returning, we will have to wait a while before we see a return for provincial rugby. It is hoped that the Pro14 and Champions Cup could resume in August or September, but that remains to be seen.

Until then, rugby fans will have to get their fix from elsewhere.

Brian O'Driscoll has helped one rugby fan catch up on the sport, have a video chat with longtime Leinster supporter Mark Woods. Talk inevitably turned to the current lack of live sport, with O'Driscoll admitting he is struggling without it.

I'm missing sport in general. You realise now with having no live sport how important it is in everyone's life.

People say in the bigger scheme sport isn't important, and yes comparatively to life and death it's not, but it's a hugely important aspect in so many people's lives.

It's a reason for people to come together, have fun together and have a laugh, have a range of emotions. You'd miss even a bit of sadness thrown in there as well!

The next topic of conversations was Leinster's success during O'Driscoll's time with the province, recalling one instance after the 2009 Heineken Cup final that he cringes at looking back.

Mark: I was just watching the YouTube of it there because I was looking for some rugby to watch, but that was one of the most memorable games. Edinburgh was amazing because that was the first one.

O'Driscoll: Yeah but if we hadn't gone on from that big victory against Munster in the semi-final to go on and win it, it would have really mattered for nothing.

To do it against one of the real European stronghold teams in Leicester, a two-time winner and multiple finalist, to go and beat them in the final having been trailing at halftime, we just ticked all the boxes.

You know that song from the Black Eyed Peas 'Tonight's Gonna be a Good Night'? Every time that comes on the radio I remember that because I remember us all in a circle and we were taking turns in getting in the middle and do our little dance.

I was praying to god that the camera wasn't on me breaking out my moves, it was like dad dancing!
