Brian O’Driscoll’s decided to post a throwback-Thursday picture today ahead of Ireland’s game against Wales and it’s a particularly painful one.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – fronted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy and Ireland international Megan Williams. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

O’Driscoll shared an image of the back injury he suffered after he was the victim of a huge hit from Welsh centre Scott Williams.
