Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has admitted he was left bemused by the Lions’ decision to overlook Johnny Sexton as injury cover for the stricken Finn Russell.

Although Farrell opted to rest Sexton for the summer Tests against Japan and the USA, he confirmed that the Ireland captain was fully fit and that Lions boss Warren Gatland was aware of the situation.
