The second Lions test against South Africa was a brutal affair, with the Springboks dominating in the physical department.
The South African players such as Bakkies Botha and Victor Matfield bullied the Lions and it looked like it was going to become a rout for the men in green.
Brian O’Driscoll decided to take things into his own hands with a piece of domination of his own.
The tide of the match turned after this moment and it only took some Ronan O’Gara brain fade at the end of the match to deny the Lions a famous win.
This was a truly savage moment from Brian O’Driscoll. South Africa fans fear BOD after this.
