Jonny sexton It was one of the great absences in the tour of the British & Irish Lions by South Africa in July 2021. The Irish opening expressed its discomfort and assured that it will not be able to overcome it easily.
“Obviously, when they don’t choose you it’s a big disappointment, but look, they took a certain course and I was not part of their plans and it was difficult, but that’s life and I have to try to recover,” said Sexton.
Warren Gatland didn’t have Ireland’s 10 for the series against the Springboks. The chosen openings were Owen Farrell, Finn Russell and Marcus Smith.
Sexton was very disappointed because of the non-call: “I have had many setbacks in my career and now it is up to me to recover this season. I don’t think I will ever get over it, but I have accepted it, a long time ago I accepted that I was not going to be taken into account “.
