Johnny Sexton Set to Miss Club Rugby Season Due to Injury, Will Retire After 2023 Rugby World Cup

Leinster’s Johnny Sexton, the fly-half and Ireland captain, is set to miss the rest of the club rugby season due to a groin injury. The injury was picked up during Ireland’s final Six Nations win against England earlier this month, which earned them the Grand Slam. Sexton, who has confirmed that he will retire from rugby following this year’s Rugby World Cup in France, will undergo a procedure on his groin after seeing a specialist on Tuesday.

Leinster will face Ulster in the Heineken Champions Cup at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday. The final is set to take place in Dublin on May 20. Ireland’s opening group game for the 2023 Rugby World Cup will be against Romania the day after the tournament starts on September 8.
