Leinster's Garry Ringrose has been impressing at provincial level this season and Brian O'Driscoll feels the young centre should win his first cap at some point during 2016. 

Off The Ball's premier rugby correspondent was on the show tonight and touched on the former Ireland U20 star. 

"I floated out a tweet over Christmas saying that Ireland could do worse than having Garry playing against Wales in the Six Nations on the 7th of February and I'm not back-tracking, but I said they could do worse than that," he said.

 

"I'm not saying he has to guarantee a start but I can think of lots of other combinations that would be a lot worse than a combination of Garry plus one. I think it's probably a Six Nations too early maybe. He should be in their training camp but definitely get capped in the summer on the test tour to South Africa."
