Rugby star Peter O'Mahony is desperate to be part of Joe Schmidt's attempt to pull off an historic double victory over the All Blacks.

O'Mahony has successfully battled back from injury and is now widely tipped to be part of the team for the re-match with New Zealand on November 19 in Dublin.

Ireland are hoping to double their win total against the All Blacks after securing their first victory in 111 years in Chicago at the weekend.

Agonisingly, O'Mahony missed the Chicago test.

The Munster star was speaking as he launched the Dogs for the Disabled 2017 calendar.

The charity provides dogs that help to change the lives of disabled people.
