Brian O’Driscoll has been careful not to stoke the Warren Gatland fires ahead of this weekend’s game which is why he was very unhappy with BT Sport this morning.

The build-up to Saturday’s game has almost been overshadowed by the Lions issue where Gatland dropped the Irish centre from the third and decisive Test, despite both parties insisting that it is water under the bridge.

O’Driscoll was therefore not pleased when he saw the interview he gave to Craig Doyle and BT Sport which was titled ‘Brian O’Driscoll on Lions omission’.

The player tweeted both BT and Craig Doyle “thanks for that. One question in an interview & you put it in the headline. Typical,”

“unbelievably annoying headline. So annoyed with it. Who cares any more.”

“I told them to edit it to within an inch of its life....”

The video has been since taken down but the full interview is due to be broadcast tonight.
