O'Driscoll confident he will overcome injury

Brian O'Driscoll remains positive about his forthcoming six-month lay-off to overcome impending shoulder surgery.

The Ireland captain says his enforced sabbatical will give him the chance to re-focus and set more goals for the latter part of his career.

O'Driscoll will miss Ireland's Six Nations campaign and the pool stages of Leinster's Heineken Cup defence.
