            The 32-year-old had surgery to correct a long-standing shoulder problem just over two weeks ago and returned to the Leinster camp this week to begin his rehabilitation, which is expected to last six weeks.          
             "I was only in (hospital) for a fraction over 24 hours and it's just been a case of taking rest. I am not a great person to be sitting around. I was told to do nothing for two weeks after the operation which was Wednesday, but I snuck in on Monday to do a sneaky 'bike' to alleviate that bit of extra pressure I was feeling," - said O'Driscoll after last week's operation.
"I certainly feel I have got a really big year in me next year," O'Driscoll told Newstalk Radio.
              "People are talking about getting back and having one more go at the Lions, but the way Eoin (O'Malley) and Fergus (McFadden) are going, let's get back in the Leinster team first. I am acutely aware that I can't take anything for granted in rugby because I have seen how fickle it can be."
