Ireland beat Italy in the Six Nations on Saturday. It was the last time national treasure Brian O'Driscoll turned out for his country at home.

The centre turned in another top-class performance and was substituted off with a quarter of the game to go.

Cue the applause.

Ireland go into their final match against France with a chance of winning the tournament, which would be a fine way for O'Driscoll to exit the stage.
