Brian O’Driscoll will lead Ireland into the Rugby World Cup

Thankfully, Brian O’Driscoll will be able to guide Ireland into their first world cup game against Namibia this Sunday.

The Irish captain sustained a fractured sinus injury when playing against the French club Bayonne last month.

Now that the captain is fully recovered from his sports wound, he can now help Ireland on their way to victory!

The Namibian team will have less support than they had predicted. The president of the Rugby Union of Namibia and all of his executives have been banned from the Rugby World Cup due to suspected irregular sales of tickets. All the more support for Ireland!
