LIFE, as Tiger Woods’ wife now knows, has a habit of throwing up the odd surprise or two just when you least expected it.
Who’d have thought six months ago that we would be discussing birdies of a very different nature in any conversation concerning Tiger and the Masters?
O’Driscoll has recovered from the bang to his head from Paul O’Connell’s knee that forced him off after 64 minutes of the win over England at Twickenham two weekends ago.
There is nothing new in an Ireland team beating England these days; it’s almost common practice when you consider that Saturday’s win at Twickenham was the sixth for the Irish in their last seven encounters with the oldest enemy.
It was still sweet nonetheless. As Jamie Heaslip said in the tunnel afterwards, beating England at anything is sweet for any Irishman, be it rugby, table tennis or even tiddly winks.
How ironic then that Ireland now needs the same England team to do them a favor when they go to France on the final day of the season and for the final game of the campaign.
