Ireland continue their Six Nations campaign this afternoon as Italy come to town. Joe Schmidt’s side will be eager to take the second step on the road to a potential Grand Slam, but the mood would have been very different were it not for the right boot of Johnny Sexton.
The late, late show in the Stade de France was a shot watched around the world, and was the talk of all sports fans in recent days. Another man who made international headlines this week was Elon Musk, so it was only fitting that a montage were to be put together combining the two.
As they continue their build-up to Ireland vs Italy, TV3 put together this promo featuring Sexton’s drop-goal, and it’s an absolute belter.
