Brian O’Driscoll has congratulated the players who made their international bows during the Series win in Argentina, while sparing a thought for his father Frank.

Ireland’s record try-scorer is now a spectator and watched on as the likes of Rob Herring, Noel Reid, Kieran Marmion, Robbie Dicak and James Cronin made their international debuts in the 2-0 series victory.

Joe Schmidt will be delighted to have ended his first season in charge with blooding in new players, though the issue of replacing O’Driscoll himself may take considerably more time.

O’Driscoll offered his congratulations to the players, while also lamented the Argentinean tour of 1970, which has bitter-sweet memories for his father Frank, who would go on to claim four international caps.
