However O’Driscoll received a three-week ban for stamping in the 22-15 loss to Italy and is only now free to return to action for Leinster at Munster at the weekend.
And, eyeing a place on the British & Irish Lions trip to Australia in the summer, O’Driscoll, who if selected would be touring for the fourth time, is still putting off talk of retirement.
“Who knows what the final act will be in my career. I just have to play it out this season and see how things unfold. Then I’ll make a call after that,” said O’Driscoll.
“I’m not under any massive pressure to make a decision. I will see what happens over the next few months and take a look at things in July.
“Playing for the Lions is the ultimate in your career, such a massive honour. You only have to look at the quality of some of the players who have never been on a Lions tour to realise that.
“Playing in that calibre of team, and training day in, day out with that level of player, brings out the best in you. It’s hugely exciting.
“I would love to be a part of a Lions team capable of winning a Test series and I think the team being put together by [coach] Warren Gatland is definitely capable of doing that in Australia.”
