Johnny Sexton: “I might not be a part of the full cycle”

The Irish captain has 96 caps for Ireland and are we seeing the end for the Irish great? Will Sexton make it on the Lions tour(the hopeful Lions Tour) this summer?

“When we talk about World Cup cycles, I might not be a part of the full cycle but this group will definitely be better for this type of coaching and structures,” Sexton said via RTE.

“If you look at what I have said it has been other people who have thrown fuel on the fire. Isa [Nacewa] was telling people I could play until I am 40, 41.

“I have always been of the same position. I absolutely love what I do and I am very privileged to do it and I am still loving it. I will keep playing for now.

“I have spoken of my admiration for athletes who have stayed at the top of their game for a long time but [we need to be] careful about what I said and what other people said, that can get lost a bit.

“At the moment, I am contracted for this season and nearly contracted for next season. We’ll see what happens.”
