    If I were BOD I think I'd be a bit embarrassed by this. These sponsors need to just let these things develop organically, instead of feeding the players cheesy lines. Adidas of all companies should know better; they set the standard 10 years ago with that Wilko-Becks training ground thing.

    The video was a lil contrived which is the exact opposite of BOD and everything he's Ever stood for. God even his post game words, joking about Obama having a piece of paper put in front of him and putting on the jersey in years to come when no one is looking cut right to the core of this incredibly humble superstar. I had tears watching the temple street video as well realizing I too will never watch my favorite athlete compete for my favorite team ever again. I'm not even sure they'll be my favorites without him.

    Great sportsman who brought some magic to three-quarter play in rugby in three 21st century! Up there with the best - Barry John, Mike Gibson, Dani Herber, Mark Ella, Steve Pokere in how to unlock a defence! British & Irish Lion says it all..

    Puma (Irelands sponsor) missed out big time by not doing anything for BOD. Brilliant from the players. Brian O'Driscoll you've changed rugby and will never be forgotten! You're a legend.

    Thanks Connacht. Brilliant vid. Now have a big fat smile on my face for the day (and some serious disregard for life's small annoyances...)

    An absolute legend, we were lucky to have seen him play. A beautiful tribute to the man from not only his friends and colleagues but also from his "enemies". Just goes to prove what a great game rugby is.
