WATCH: Yes you want to watch that last gasp Johnny Sexton dropgoal over and over!

Kate Demolder

Let’s relive this beautiful moment again, shall we?

It’s not over until it’s over, as demonstrated beautifully by Johnny Sexton today.

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.

And for those of you who may have missed it (what on Earth could you have possibly been doing that was more important?) check out the beautiful clip below.

Following a badly missed kick earlier on in the game, it was all to play for for Sexton.

By phase 37 he was back up and directing traffic. On phase 40, he dropped back. Phase 41 was it and Sexton backed himself. 46 metres out from the French posts and the Ireland outhalf called the ball on himself.

We’ve had it on repeat for hours.

What a beautiful moment for Irish Rugby. And what a finish!
