WATCH: Sexton Snatches Victory At The Death After 40 Incredible Phases

What a finish.

Ireland have snatched victory at the death in Paris thanks to a monster drop-goal from 42 metres by Johnny Sexton.

It looked like Teddy Thomas had won it for for the French with a late try, but Ireland dug deep and come away with the win on the opening day of the tournament.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Sexton’s effort came after 42 incredible phases and keeps Ireland’s hopes of a Grand Slam alive with three home games now to come, before a huge game with England at Twickenham.
