“Three counts of misconduct” – Johnny Sexton could be set to miss the Rugby World Cup

Johnny Sexton may potentially face disciplinary action for his actions following Leinster’s heartbreaking loss to La Rochelle in the Champions Cup final at Aviva Stadium.

According to a report from City A.M, Sexton has been accused of three instances of misconduct and has been notified about it through a letter from the EPCR.

Receiving a misconduct letter is a typical step in the disciplinary process, and Sexton is said to have received it during the latter part of last week.

Both Sexton and Leinster have been given an opportunity to respond to the letter before the officials determine the subsequent course of action.

Sexton is alleged to have directed offensive language towards the three on-pitch officials, namely Peyper, Dickson, and Christophe Ridley, the other linesman.


In a worst case scenario, a significant ban would end his illustrious career after Sexton confirmed he’d retire.

However, it appears that a incident in the half-time tunnel with Ronan O’Gara is now being viewed as a minor altercation, and it is unlikely that severe penalties will be imposed as a result.
