Ross warns of O'Driscoll threat
15 February 2003 13:25pm
Scotland stand-off Gordon Ross has warned his team-mates that Irish centre Brian O'Driscoll will be the main threat when the teams meet at Murrayfield on Sunday.
The Scots have not lost to Ireland on home soil since 1985 but Leeds Tykes star Ross believes stopping O'Driscoll will be the key to another success.
The Lions centre scored a brilliant hat-trick in last March's 43-22 victory at Lansdowne Road and again he is the man who Scotland fear most.
Ross said: "They've got a big pack capable of winning ball and they've also got very good half-backs.
"David Humphreys coming in for Ronan O'Gara is not going to weaken them at all, and O'Driscoll is their key player in the backs and obviously in the last couple of years he's run Scotland ragged.
"We'll need to keep a close eye on him. So pretty much everywhere in their team they have strengths and we've got to try and negate that."
