Johnny Sexton becomes Irelands leading points scorer

By scoring a try in the 38th minute against Tonga during the 2023 World Cup, Ireland fly-half Johnny Sexton became the player with the most points in the Irish jersey on Saturday September 16 in Nantes, dethroning Ronan O’Gara (1,083 points). Aged 38, Sexton, 115 caps, has become a little more legendary in rugby and a huge clamor resounded in the Beaujoire stadium when the Irish fly-half scored the try under the posts (38th), which he himself transformed. Last March, the iconic Leinster fly-half had already overtaken Ronan O’Gara as the Irish player with the most points in the Six Nations Tournament.
