Despite being overlooked for the captaincy, O'Driscoll will have a huge part to play when he embarks on his third Lions tour in South Africa this summer.
After being named captain for the 2005 tour of New Zealand, a controversial double spear tackle ended his tour prematurely, and he will be determined to make his mark this time out.
The famous Irish saying "in BOD we trust" was never more appropriate than in the winter of 2009 when he led his nation to Grand Slam glory and he heads to Africa on top of his game.
With 97 Tests with Ireland already under his belt and 36 tries to boot, O'Driscoll's quality, experience and leadership will all be key to the Lions hopes of back-to-back wins over the Boks.
