Johnny Sexton shows another touch of class with festive trip to Cork

Ireland and Leinster star, Johnny Sexton, is coming in for some serious - and deserved - plaudits on social media.

Sexton - in his first posts on Twitter and Instagram - revealed that he had travelled to Cork after Christmas to say cheerio to his former team-mate, coach and rival, Ronan O’Gara, and family.

The move has been seen as yet another touch of class by the Irish out half and rightly so.

It’s all a far cry from this other coming together in 2009 and that is all the more credit to both men.
