- Ireland fly-half sustained a dead leg against Wales
- 37-year-old made five kicks from five in 34-10 win
Andy Farrell has allayed any concerns that Johnny Sexton might miss Ireland’s pivotal match against France in Dublin next weekend. Ireland’s captain was nursing a dead leg after a collision with Liam Williams, for which the Wales full-back was shown a yellow card, but the injury is not serious.
Williams went to the sin-bin for making contact with Sexton’s head. When the latter received treatment after the collision, the referee insisted he leave for a head injury assessment. Sexton protested that he was being treated for a leg injury. He consequently passed the HIA.
