Brian O'Driscoll has described Robbie Henshaw's decision to join Leinster as a "great move".

Off The Ball's premier rugby correspondent gave his take on the Connacht and Ireland centre's upcoming switch and sees it as a positive for the player and Leinster.

"It's great for Leinster. It's a great move. It's been touted for a long time," he said. 

"But I absolutely, from a Connacht perspective, could feel the annoyance and the disappointment of them and their supporters because it's one of their own and they've groomed him to be the player that he is and now he's going to one of the main competitors."

Brian also reflected on the defeat to France and why we missed the likes of Keith Earls and Luke Fitzgerald in that game which you can listen to on the podcast player:
