Brian O'Driscoll was named Rugby World Magazine's World Player of the decade, an accolade which accurately reflects the impact he has had in the world game and the esteem in which he is held.

When one thinks of the caliber of players who have played in the past 10 years, to be named the top player is a huge honor.

Whether in the blue of Leinster, the green of Ireland or the red of the Lions, O'Driscoll has delivered on all fronts.

A well deserved award!
