Stick a seven on his back.
Johnny Sexton might not have had the best of days from the tee on Saturday afternoon, but he didn’t put a foot wrong elsewhere.
The talented playmaker was once again instrumental for Ireland in their bonus-point win over Wales. His pass for Stockdale’s opening try was nothing short of world class, and his general game management was superb throughout.
He also appears to have added another element to his game. The Leinster outhalf is well able to carry when his team needs it. With 53 minutes on the clock on Saturday, and Ireland pushing for a bonus-point, Sexton crashed it up in some style, flattening Wales winger Steff Evans.
The carry proved to be a huge moment, with Ireland crashing over for the all important fourth try through Cian Healy just two phases later.
Also keep any eye out for Stander’s carry after Sexton’s. It takes three Welsh men to bring him to the ground. What a beast.
Who remembers this carry from Sexton in the build-up to Ireland's fourth try?
