O'Driscoll drop is rough but we must move on

Published 07/11/2013

IN response to Liam Cooke (Write Back, November 6), I find it amusing how many people seem to be still losing sleep over why Warren Gatland dropped Brian O'Driscoll from the Lions team in the third test.

Gatland has made it blatantly obvious on a number of occasions that his test centre combination was always going to be the Roberts and Davies partnership.

O'Driscoll starting in the first and second tests was only due to the fact Roberts was injured.

Unfortunately, O'Driscoll did not play himself in to the team. Sport is cruel indeed. But, for God's sake, please move on.
