The Perfect 10 - Paul Kimmage gets a look at life in France for Jonathan Sexton

Published 07/11/2013 | 10:43

Last February Jonathan Sexton shocked Irish rugby when he announced he would leave Leinster in the summer and team up with leading French club Racing Metro in Paris.

He’s been there five months now, settling into a new life and a new regime.

Over the last few months, award-winning journalist Paul Kimmage has spent some time with the Ireland star in his new surroundings in France, and also in his home city as he prepares to test himself against Australia and New Zealand in the coming weeks.

Paul has also visited his new home, his new training ground and took in a Top 14 match against Bordeaux-Begles. Sexton talks about his relationship with kicking coach Ronan O’Gara, and the pair bump into O’Gara along the way.
