With the Rugby World Cup about to get underway in Japan this month, former Ireland rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll joined us to look ahead to the campaign and assess the team's chances.

This will be the second World Cup since O'Driscoll's own retirement, and he feels the current squad is better than ever.

Despite a disappointing Six Nations and heavy defeat to England in last month's warm-up match at Twickenham, he insists Ireland still have a great chance of going far in the World Cup and that poor form can be turned around quickly.

O'Driscoll also explained why outside expectations will matter to the team, and why he looks back on his own World Cup campaigns with some regret, despite enjoying many stellar moments in an Ireland shirt.
