Episode 841: Johnny Sexton On Leinster, Longevity And The Lions, Newcastle In Trouble, Big Sam’s Battle Plan
Johnny Sexton doesn’t have too long to ponder the heart-ache from last Sunday’s defeat to Clermont in the European Rugby Champions Cup, because he has a Pro 12 title to win, and a Lions tour to prepare for.
We speak to Sexton about Leinster’s turnaround in style this year, the emergence of another batch of young guns, the desire for longevity, and what excites him about heading to New Zealand with The Lions in June.
A business-like performance from Chelsea saw them re-establish a 7-point lead at the top of the premier league, and Spurs have to face a rejuvenated Crystal Palace tonight. What can Big Sam learn from the battle of Cannae? Ken has the answers.
