Schmidt praises Ireland and O'Driscoll
- From the section Rugby Union
Ireland's 46-7 win over Italy pleases coach Joe Schmidt, who hails the "world class" Brian O'Driscoll on his last international appearance on home soil.
Schmidt said Ireland were "relentless" in keeping the pressure on the Italians and the victory leaves his side top of the Six Nations standings going into the final game against France.
The match in Paris next Saturday will be O'Driscoll's 141st and last in an Ireland jersey.
