BoD's not afraid to be a sweetie

ON the eve of the Rugby World Cup, Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll has revealed how he wooed and won his beautiful bride, Amy.

Brian, in his own words, explained how having first seen her on TV, he became smitten and "stalked" her.

With the verve, flair and talent which he's brought to so many victories on the field, he set about capturing Amy's heart.

He's spoken about how friends conspired to arrange for the pair to meet and he took it from there.

It's kind of refreshing that a guy so respected in a very macho sport feels happy to reveal the romantic side of his nature.

Let is be a lesson to the beefheads out there that faint hearts never won fair lady.
