Hungry: Chris Fusaro

Glasgow flank Chris Fusaro is keen to spoil Brian O'Driscoll's farewell party when they collide with Leinster in next weekend's RaboDirect PRO12 final.

The 24-year-old, however, knows claiming victory over the Irish side will be no mean feat, especially as it is O'Driscoll's emotional goodbye to rugby.

"It's obviously going to be a very emotional time for him," he told BBC Sport ahead of the RDS clash.

"He's a very big threat in attack and defence but their whole team have been playing very well. In their semi-final win against Ulster you could just see the patience they had.

"It took them until the 72nd minute to win the game but they still achieved it and it's something they are very good at - closing out the close games."

Fusaro is expecting a closely-fought affair on Saturday and knows that with one win each from their two previous meetings so far this season, the prize will be there for the taking in Dublin.

"We set out at the start of the season to achieve something that no Scottish club's ever done before and now we've got a massive chance to do that," he added.

"It's just a great feeling to be in the final, but we really need to take the next step. It's a chance to make history.

"It's just an incredible opportunity and something we're all really looking forward to.

"Hopefully we'll have a good travelling support over there in Dublin."
