O'Driscoll declared fit to face Springboks

O'Driscoll declared fit to face Springboks

Brian O'Driscoll has recovered from a hamstring injury and will captain Ireland against South Africa at Lansdowne Road on Saturday.
The Leinster center has been out of action since Oct. 9 with the injury but has been passed fit after coming through training sessions on Monday and Tuesday.
In a Leinster-dominated back division, Jonathan Sexton has been chosen ahead of Ronan O'Gara at flyhalf and Eoin Reddan is at scrumhalf instead of the injured Tomas O'Leary.
Luke Fitzgerald has beaten off rivals Keith Earls and Andrew Trimble to claim the left-wing spot and Cian Healy was preferred to Tom Court at loosehead prop.
Ireland has lost its last three tests but beat South Africa 15-10 at Croke Park last November.
