Kidney rues loss of injured duo for autumn internationals

Ireland coach Declan Kidney bemoans the loss of Brian O'Driscoll and Rory Best for the autumn international series.

Both players have been ruled out of the games against South Africa and Argentina because of injury.

Kidney is now examining his options in the backline and at hooker, and must also assess who should take over the captain's armband from O'Driscoll.
