Brian O'Driscoll rib breaker on Clement Poitrenaud

Brian O'Driscoll rib breaker on Clement Poitrenaud

Ireland haven't had a whole lot to cheer about during this World Cup. Their performances have been anything but inspired, with narrow victories over minnow sides, and then a significant loss to hosts France.

One thing worth seeing though is this clip of captain Brian O'Driscoll's big rib tickler tackle on French fullback Clement Pointrenaud. A great textbook tackle, showing that you can hit hard while still tackling legally.
