O'Driscoll: Ireland to 2013

2011-02-03 22:12

Dublin - Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll has hinted that he will continue playing Test rugby after this year's World Cup, by re-signing with Ireland for another two years to 2013.

The 32-year-old O'Driscoll, who could surpass South Africa's John Smit during the Six Nations as the leading captain in world rugby, says he's still competing at a high level and is not considering retiring.

He says his "appetite to achieve more with Leinster and Ireland certainly has not been dampened by our recent success."

Leinster teammates No. 8 Jamie Heaslip and flyhalf Jonathan Sexton also extended their Ireland contracts on Thursday, Sexton to 2013 and Heaslip to 2014.
