Brian O'Driscoll announces retirement plans

Ireland's record try scorer Brian O'Driscoll confirms that he will retire from all forms of rugby at the end of the season.

Brian O'Driscoll has announced that he will retire from all forms of rugby at the end of the upcoming season.

Ireland's record try scorer, who has spent his entire 14-year club career with Leinster, recently took part in his fourth tour with the British and Irish Lions.

"You want to win everything you are in," the 34-year-old told Irish radio station Newstalk. "It would be lovely to win a championship and a Six Nations and the Heineken Cup. I'm lucky to have won some things in the latter part of my career and most recently a Lions series so it's nice to tick some boxes.

"A big one this year to get myself in shape for and get in the process of being selected is the All Blacks in November. That's one that's failed on multiple occasions, and this is the last chance to get a go at them, so that would be a lovely one if I was to pick one out for the year."

O'Driscoll has earned 125 caps for Ireland since making his debut in 1999.
