The Irish rugby captain Johnny Sexton was talking to RTE post match and the St. Mary’s man was extremely emotional after the match and the reception he received from the Irish crowd was fitting to the man. Sexton was brilliant again yesterday as Ireland defeat Japan 60 points to five.
It will be a different test next week when the All Blacks come to town, can Ireland win all three tests by beating the All Blacks and Argentina the week after? It’s a big ask up against New Zealand who hammered Italy, Wales and the USA in their last three games.
