Jamie Heaslip will captain Ireland for the Six Nations

IRELAND No. 8 Jamie Heaslip will take over from Brian O'Driscoll as captain for this year's Six Nations, coach Declan Kidney revealed today, bringing an end to the centre's 10-year stint as skipper.

Heaslip captained Ireland in the November tests in his Leinster team mate's absence through injury and although O'Driscoll has returned to the squad, Kidney said the time was right for a change of leader.
