It doesn’t look like Brian O’Driscoll is one to sit back on his laurels!
Just two days after his final appearance on the rugby field last Saturday, it has been revealed that he will join the radio station, Newstalk.
The station posted the surprising news to their Twitter account, writing: “We’re delighted to announce that @BrianODriscoll has joined the @offtheball team.”
The rugby star is seemingly delighted with his new post, saying: “Making the decision to join the Off the Ball team was an easy one for me – it’s the nation’s leading sports show and following a break this summer I’ll be more than ready for it come September.”
Ger Gilroy, sports editor over at Newstalk, expressed their delight at having the rugby veteran on their team: “We are thrilled that Brian has decided to join the Off the Ball team, we had a gap for a world class centre! Seriously though, his giant sports brain will be picked on a regular basis, we can’t wait.”
