Sinead Kissane: O'Driscoll has it all and losing the captaincy won't change a thing

'What was O'Driscoll's reaction?' It was the first question I asked Declan Kidney at yesterday's news conference after he revealed that Brian O'Driscoll would not captain Ireland in the upcoming Six Nations Championship.

Maybe it was the romantic in me. We don't know if O'Driscoll is in his final lap as a professional player. If it is, I wanted to see O'Driscoll lead Ireland for what could be his final Six Nations.

"Disappointed" was Kidney's response to my question.
