    If those well known rugby loving media sources the Sun and 98fm are reporting it, it must be true! Assuming there is substance to this, it would be an excellent move for Sexton. He's going stale at Leinster so moving is probably the right thing to do. He'd be moving to a strong club who are on the lookout for a new starting flyhalf, round out his game and get a sun tan. I hope it works out for him.

    With Felipe Contepomi also out of contract, what are the odds on Ian Keatley moving to Leinster next season?

    Chieka should be strung up by the balls if he lets this happen, good move for Sexton no doubt, but would be a bad move for Leinster.

    **** sake.

    We need Keatley or Sexton down in Munster if Warwick is gonna leave!

    This is all Cheika's fault. And Nescewa isn't even playing well at outhalf!

    Let him go, with that fool in charge of Leinster he would get more game time in France/Catalonia!

    I do not know that much about Sexton but it could be a good move for him. ROG will probably be the Irish fly-half until the next World Cup, so the amount of experience Sexton can absorb in the next few years is vital. He will definately get a physical beating over in France and will need to know how to tackle hard men - which is a good thing as O'Gara isn't the best tackler in the world.
     
  7. As a Leinster fan, I'm obviously disappointed if this turns out to be true. Sexton showed last season that he can develop into a fine player but he's not taken his opportunities this season (and it's unfair to say that he wasn't given a chance by Cheika because he's started a lot of games). A change would be great for him and great for Ireland. If he goes to Perpignan and starts regularly, he'll be playing for an excellent club at a very high level. It will allow him advance his international claims to a far greater extent than is currently the case and give Ireland a viable alternative to O'Gara. Sexton, Humphreys, O'Gara and Keatley all getting regular rugby, can only boost the national team.
