Ireland absolutely stole the game in the last few seconds as Sexton thumped a drop goal from 42 metres out on a wet pitch with a wet (and heavier) ball.

Incredible stuff from the Irish fly-half to remain that cool under pressure and win it right at the last.

What could be considered an uneventful match for 70 minutes has just been turned into a whopper of a game.

Showing unbelievable courage and character – this will remain with Sexton for the ages.

What a finish.
