Pic: A very young and skinny Luke Fitzgerald meets his heroes Brian O'Driscoll and Denis Hickie

Looking at this picture, it's hard to fathom that Irish hopes will be resting on the guy in the middle against Scotland tomorrow.

With a lot more miles in his legs and plenty more muscle on the body, Luke Fitzgerald will be hoping to emulate Brian O'Driscoll and Denis Hickie when Ireland take on Scotland in tomorrow's crunch Six Nations clash in Murrayfield.

O'Driscoll and Hickie were always good for a try or two and how Ireland could do with them against Scotland with the title set to go down to points difference between Ireland, Wales and England.

The pictures was taken at a French rugby camp and, at a guess, about 13/14 years ago. The boy Fitzgerald is very much a man now and all eyes will be on him tomorrow.
