Ireland coach Declan Kidney has described Brian O'Driscoll's performance in Saturday's Six Nations victory over Wales as "international class".
O'Driscoll scored his side's third try at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff as they saw off the defending champions 30-22 in the tournament's opening fixture.
"Huge credit to him, given the amount of game time he has had, to come out and give such an international-class performance like he did today," said Kidney.
"With Brian it is just a privilege to be working with him."
Ireland continue their campaign next Sunday when they host England in Dublin.
