Six Nations: Johnny Sexton sets all-time points record
Johnny Sexton became the highest points scorer in Six Nations history as the Ireland captain topped Ronan O'Gara's record haul in Saturday's showdown with England.
Fly-half Sexton, who plans to retire after the Rugby World Cup later this year, remains a hugely significant part of the Ireland team who sit top of the world rankings and headed into their final fixture of this year's Six Nations with a Grand Slam in their sights.
The 37-year-old came into the match with 557 points in the Six Nations, level with former team-mate O'Gara.
He slotted over with 18 minutes on the clock against England at the Aviva Stadium to move top of the list outright.
The record held by Sexton covers the entirety of the Six Nations, as well as its previous incarnation as the Five Nations.
