Leinster head coach Joe Schmidt was not surprised that Jonathan Sexton held his nerve to salvage a 16-16 draw with the last kick of a pulsating game against Montpellier.
Fulgence Ouedraogo's first-half try looked like it might have been enough to give Heineken Cup debutants Montpellier a fairytale win against the defending champions, only for the visitors to stage a stirring comeback.
Sean Cronin's 66th-minute try gave them hope before the assured Sexton levelled things at 16-16 with a last-gasp penalty, with Schmidt saying: "That's typical Johnny."
The talismanic out-half had missed with a much easier chance shortly before Cronin's try but Schmidt felt Sexton could bounce back despite being jeered by the large home support as he lined up his final attempt.
Schmidt added: "I don't think he was rattled by it at all. I think it helps him narrow his focus and get the job done, and he did that superbly."
Leinster captain Leo Cullen felt a draw was a fair result, with the visitors' late pressure finally taking its toll on a tiring Montpellier side.
"We created some good opportunities in the first half when we played with a bit of pace," he said.
"There were a couple of key moments in the game. We were attacking inside the 22 and turned the ball over and they went down the field and scored a try so that felt like a 14-point turnaround.
"Montpellier competed very well at the breakdown and we weren't accurate enough in that area. At half-time we talked about being more clinical holding onto the ball and eventually we got over towards the end.
"We had some opportunities out there but so did Montpellier, so it was an even enough match really."
