Bob Dwyer thinks Ireland would be better off without BOD

Google Image Result for http://www.abc.net.au/reslib/200311/r11463_27225.jpgSo Bob Dwyer thinks that being a World Class player is a disadvantage….hmmm….ok. Did he send leinster without O’Driscoll? Does he see BOD as a great or good captain. I really believe that Ireland would have defeated France in the 6 Nations if BOD was on the field, not because of his skill as a player but as a captain. I think he would have concentrated the players and focused them on not conceding a silly try at the death. Upside he thinks Ireland can make the final…maybe Image uploaded with Skitch!
“…Brian O’Driscoll is a great player, but he could be an even greater player if he was prepared to listen and learn. Even the best players can benefit from that.”

“Ireland are a very good side in my book. They are strong and a big part of their game is their centres. But O’Driscoll’s strengths are his flaws. His lightning acceleration and outside break is a very strong part of his game. But unless those qualities create the ultimate advantage they bring a strong disadvantage, which is that he gets tackled going sideways. What that also means is that he has used all the space those outside him need to play in.”
