BOD exposes farmer's tan

It's been a pretty hectic week for Brian O'Driscoll between meeting the queen, US President Barack Obama and playing an inspirational role in Leinster's second Heineken Cup triumph last weekend.

And the Ireland captain proved as much when he posted a picture of himself on his Twitter account seemingly in a deep sleep, with one arm around the most prized trophy in European club rugby.

It's an image that captures the effort that went into Saturday's remarkable achievement but one that also, as O'Driscoll readily admits, includes the "humiliation of having a farmer's tan!"
