O'Driscoll says Irish support is the best

The Ireland rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll says his team got better support in Dunedin on Sunday night than they have in Dublin sometimes.

The crowd was completely behind the Irish as they beat Italy 36-6 to finish top of their World Cup pool and set up a quarter-final clash with Wales.

There was huge support for Ireland during their upset win over Australia earlier in the tournament, but O'Driscoll says it was better on Sunday night.

Ireland will play Wales in their quarter-final in Wellington on Saturday.
