As if being three weeks late for the Six Nations wasn’t enough.
Johnny Sexton makes his long awaited return for Ireland this weekend, taking Paddy Jackson’s spot in the starting line-up against France.
The Leinster playmaker has recovered form a calf problem he picked up while playing in the Champions Cup, and starts his first game for Ireland since November.
It seems his time away from the Ireland squad has had an effect on Sexton as he arrived late for the customary team photo before the captain’s run today, probably because he’s not used to being in the team due to injury!
Simon Zebo decided to take advantage of the situation, stealing Sexton’s seat at the front.
Rob Kearney it seems decided to point out to Sexton he was being had.
Zebo knew he was caught.
Back to the back you go.
Sexton take his spot at the front.
And order is restored!
