Ireland not looking beyond weekend

7:00 am on 7 October 2011

The Ireland rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll was taken by surprise when some members of the media suggested they'll be playing in the Rugby World Cup final.

Ireland has been one of the form teams so far and they take on Wales in one of the most anticipated quarter-final clashes this weekend.

The 32-year-old, 116-cap veteran says they're definitely not looking that far ahead.

Ireland have selected 117-Test veteran Ronan O'Gara to start at first five.

Hooker Rory Best has passed a late fitness test on a shoulder injury to take his place in the side.
