Brian O’Driscoll’s six players to watch in the Champions Cup


O’Driscoll: “A new Kiwi addition to the European mix who wants to add a European medal to his collection. Kaino has an incredible record with New Zealand and was an integral part of much of what they did well. I think maybe for Toulouse it’s too soon, even with the addition of Kaino. I think they’re an up-and-coming team but with Leinster and the two English sides in their group it may be too challenging this year.”


O’Driscoll: “We saw in the Challenge Cup what he can do. We were calling the game out in Spain and that never-say-die attitude really won it for them. You thought Gloucester had it but Anscombe had some huge plays in crucial moments; be it at 10 or 15 he can have a huge impact. It’s a big ask but if they can do something in that pool he’ll be central to their chances.
