All the talk was about one man leading up to today's Six Nations clash between Ireland and France. All the talk after the match was about the same person - Johnny Sexton.

"It was pretty ugly but on St Valentine's Day, Johnny Sexton yet again endeared himself to the Irish public," said the Independent's David Kelly.

"He hasn't played rugby in three months, there was concern all week about him, would he be able to cope? Would France target him? He actually targeted them. He was utterly supreme."
