Retiring Johnny Sexon ranks his top three all-time fly-halves

Johnny Sexton has confirmed he will retire after the 2023 World Cup fresh from signing a new deal with Irish Rugby.

The fly-half won his 100th cap against Japan in November and is currently captaining his country in the 2022 Guinness Six Nations.

The 36-year-old, who was World Player of the Year in 2018, is determined to go out on a high at his fourth Rugby World Cup in France next year and feels he can still deliver.

Taking part in a Q&A, Sexon has ranked his three favourite fly-halves of all-time.

#3. Felipe Contepomi (Argentina)

One of the finest number tens in world rugby for a time, Contepomi returned to Argentina to begin his career as a doctor after retiring in 2013. He was part of the famous Argentinian side that made it to the semi-finals of the 2007 Rugby World Cup, winning 79 caps for his country scoring 631 points.
