O'Driscoll alive and kicking

Saturday's match against France showed everyboy that Brian O'Driscoll is back, and he's back to stay, despite what his detractors might have said. And, talking about detractors, I heard people say that Sebastien Chabal was just a bag of fat walking around... well I think that everybody saw that he's not, even if I liked him better as a flanker than as a lock.

Declan Kidney's first appearance in the RBS Six Nations as a head coach was a great victory, and Ireland played a very good rugby. France did not let them loose, even if they did not capitalize everything they produced, and the result was a very enjoyable game, with Jamie Heaslip, Brian O’Driscoll and Gordon D’Arcy scoring three wonderful tries that let Ireland win 30-21 over France, which is something that had not happened in quite a while.

The Irish are keeping their feet on the ground - Kidney will care for that - but people are starting to wonder wheter this could be the right year, maybe playing for the Grand Slam against Wales on the last day of the tournament.
