Johnny Sexton had already signed on the dotted line before he led Ireland to victory in Rome last weekend, but the manner of his classy all-round performance showed just why he was keen to play on beyond the end of the season, and why the IRFU were happy to oblige.

The argument still stands that giving one of the younger out-halves game-time against a brutal Italian outfit would have been more beneficial, yet none of that is of Sexton’s concern.
