The real reason why Johnny Sexton has been left out of the Lions
Rugby Onslaught has worked out the real reason why Johnny Sexton has not been considered to play for the Lions rugby side.

However, it’s actually his indiscipline and willingness to lose his head that has cost him a spot.
Footage from the Autumn Nations Cup last year showed the Irishman openly disagreeing with his coach Andy Farrell when he was subbed off.
