Johnny Sexton has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract extension with the IRFU and Leinster until the end of the 2021/22 season.
The Ireland captain turns 36 in July but is as important as ever for country and province.
Sexton was named World Player of the Year in 2018 and has won three Six Nations Championships with Ireland, four European Cups, and a challenge cup with Leinster.
He’s also won a number of PRO 14 titles with his province.
He made his international debut back in 2009 and has appeared for Leinster on 171 occasions scoring 1505 points.
Johnny took on the Ireland captaincy in January 2020 and has been central to both Ireland and Leinster’s success for over a decade.
Speaking about the contract he said:
“I am really enjoying my rugby and I want to keep learning and adding value to both the Ireland and Leinster environments. I am enjoying the challenge of captaincy and the added responsibility that it brings. My appetite for success is the same as it ever was and the ambitions of both the Ireland and Leinster squads match my own.”
