Johnny Sexton is an Irish rugby union player. He plays for Leinster Rugby and Ireland. While he principally plays as a Fly-half, he has also played in other positions in the back-line.
Sexton was born in Dublin, but has family ties to North Kerry; he is a nephew of former Garryowen, Munster and Ireland rugby player William Sexton. He attended St Mary’s College, Dublin and scored a drop goal in the dying moments of the school’s 2002 Leinster Senior Cup final win. His performances at St. Mary’s led to Sexton being selected for Leinster. He made his debut against Border Reivers in 2006.
Sexton holds a Bachelor of Commerce from University College Dublin.
