O'Driscoll considering swansong at Waratahs

2:51 pm on 17 October 2012

The Irish rugby star Brian O'Driscoll is considering a season with the New South Wales Waratahs as the perfect close to his career.

Ireland's 33-year-old captain is contracted to Europe's Heineken Cup champions Leinster until the middle of next year, and he's made what he describes as "minor enquiries" Down Under.

The Waratahs' coach Michael Cheika was O'Driscoll's former coach in Ireland, and the pair could link up again after next year's Lions tour of Australia.
