Johnny Sexton is expected to be fit in time for the November internationals despite breaking his jaw on Saturday.

The Ireland fly-half was replaced after 50 minutes of Racing Metro's win over Toulon on Saturday and underwent scans yesterday that confirmed a fracture that will rule him out until mid-October.

Sexton had been due to meet with Racing Metro owner Jacky Lorenzetti yesterday to discuss his future ahead of his move home to Leinster.

The province's coach Matt O'Connor was relaxed about the issue yesterday.

"He's world class," he said. "It's a great news story, everyone wants to talk about it. A lot of the conversations have been had, he's weighing up the decision and, at the end of the day, it's his call and you'd like to think we have a pretty good chance."
