Ireland’s all time leading points scorer Johnny Sexton was speaking on The Good, the Bad, and the Rugby podcast this week and said he spoke to ROG last week.
“It was funny that we were speaking when we were tied but I haven’t heard from him yet since I broke the record!
“Honestly, the one time I did think of ROG was at the end of the game and the reception that I got. I really felt for him because he was a legend of Irish rugby and he didn’t get to finish on his own terms in a green shirt. And he deserved to as much as anyone.
“You look at the send-off Brian [O’Driscoll] got, the send-off Paulie [O’Connell] got – I know he finished with an injury, but winning the Six Nations on his final game, I did feel for him in those moments. He deserved it.”
After exceptional Grand Slam victory in Dublin, the boys are joined by the Six Nations all-time top points-scorer himself – Johnny Sexton! 🍀
