THE Wexford boy met the BOD recently and posed with the rugby legend at Lyon Airport after taking the same flight in advance of the European Rugby Champions Cup Final in which Saracens defeated Racing Metro by 21-09.

Daniel Bent, a member of the 2016 Wexford Wanderers U14's Leinster Plate Champions, was delighted to meet Brian O'Driscoll who was happy to pose with the 13 year old, who is one of his biggest fans.

Daniel, a student at the CBS in Wexford, is a winger at the Wanderers and one of the team's kickers.

'We go to the Heineken Cup Final every year,' said Daniel's dad Bob.

'He was absolutely delighted with himself to meet a hero of his.'
