Good place: Johnny Sexton says there is real talent coming behind him

Johnny Sexton has as challenged the younger out-halves in the Ireland squad to step up to the mark over the coming weeks, as the veteran dismissed concerns about lack of form from those bidding to overtake him.

The Ireland captain believes Joey Carbery (26) and Harry Byrne (22) are further along in terms of their development than Sexton was at their age, while the 36-year-old also highlighted Ciarán Frawley’s (23) quality as a 10.
