'We've got to improve' - Johnny Sexton on Ireland's third-place Six Nations finish

Johnny Sexton accepts criticism comes with the responsibility of being Ireland captain and is itching to make amends for missing out on the Guinness Six Nations title. The veteran fly-half’s role as skipper came under the spotlight following his petulant reaction to being substituted during the costly 35-27 loss to France. Defeat in Paris at the end of last month left Andy Farrell’s side third in the final Six Nations table. Ireland have an early opportunity to move on from that disappointment when they begin the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup at home to Wales on Friday evening, an opportunity Sexton is eager to seize.
