Brian O'Driscoll proved the value of gumshields today ion training.

It will take more than a mouth injury to keep Brian O’Driscoll out of his final home game for Ireland - but he has shown the value in wearing a gum shield.

Defeat at Twickenham last time out may have left a sour taste, but today in training, it was more like a bloody taste after he tweeted the aftermath of failing to use the trusty gum shield.

Ireland’s record try-scorer will become the most capped international of all-time when he steps out to face the Italians this Saturday, a brilliant achievement for the Leinster centre, with his 140th cap to eclipse the record set by Australian George Gregan.

After a career of wear and tear and putting his body on the line in a green jersey, this latest injury won’t keep O’Driscoll out of action, but he did offer advice to all rugby players out there and why the protective mouth gear is there in the first place.

“*CAUTION* : the message of the day is always wear your gum shield training,” he tweeted.
