“He set a new standard” – Owen Farrell ranks his toughest opponents

England and Saracens captain Owen Farrell has ranked some of his toughest opponents from his stellar career thus far.

#5. Johnny Sexton (Ireland)

Farrell Said: ““Johnny is a fantastic player and even though I had respect for him before the Lions, I have even more now.

“I enjoyed being around him, seeing what players bring to the job day in, day out, the detail they go into.

“Johnny demands stuff of people, demands that they know their jobs and get it right. He’s always a really tough opponent.
