Brian O'Driscoll try - Australia v Lions 2001

Brian O'Driscoll try - Australia v Lions 2001

Jonny Wilkinson fed O'Driscoll and BOD the Irishman smashed through the Wallaby back-line like a supercharged tank to score a fantastic try.

George Smith was left trailing in his wake as the 21-year-old crashed over the line to send the 12,000 delirious Lions fans in the Gabba crowd into raptures. Classic try.

Great try, happier times for him in a Lions shirt, sort of (didnt they lose the series anyway?)I remember listening to that try on the radio coming back from France, the commentator got so excited when he stepped the fullback he just let out this orgasmic moan and didnt bother commentating the rest of the run. Good times all round

Thats what O'Driscoll would've did to the All Blacks in 2005 if they hadn't decided to put him on his neck.One of the greatest tries ever.

he was 21 there, not 25 like the intro says, which makes him even more of a legend.

Has to be in the top 5 tries ever scored considering the atmosphere and what it meant.

wouldnt say he's lost it..he had just put on too much weight i think which slowed him down alot but i hear he's dropped a stone or so for this season and is looking wellin magners league so far...

Ahhhh...lovely stuff.

And nice to have the knockers, who were out in force for Bod at the start of last season, put back on their arses where they belong.
