Henshaw reveals O'Driscoll help
23 Nov 2014 16:04
Brian O'Driscoll is pulling out all the stops to mentor Robbie Henshaw through his bid to claim Ireland's vacant 13 shirt.
-
Former British and Irish Lions captain O'Driscoll anointed Connacht battering ram Henshaw as his great successor on his retirement at the end of last season.
-
Henshaw held firm at outside centre as Ireland edged out Australia 26-23 in Dublin on Saturday to complete their first autumn Test series clean sweep in eight years.
-
The 21-year-old midfielder then revealed Ireland's record caps holder O'Driscoll is doubling as a personal analysis coach to help him realise his rich potential.
-
"Brian and I stay in contact by text and a couple of phone-calls here and there," said Henshaw.
-
"He gives me a couple of things to work on, he has a look and studies my games.
-
"He is really helping me a lot and I have a lot of respect for him. He hasn't been in camp, but he has been on the phone.
-
"He has been studying the matches, having a look at them himself, giving me things to work on and telling me what I'm doing well.
-
"I made sure to ask for him to keep helping me after last season. I kind of said to him 'don't leave me now!' I said 'give me a dig-out when you go and help me to improve'."
