Andy Farrell, the coach of the Irish XV, looked back on his team's clear victory against Tonga on Saturday evening (59-16). “I am more than happy. We were able to gauge each other in a complicated match. It's always tough against Tonga, given their qualities. We knew it would be hard and I think we contained them well. Even when we were at the bottom of the wave, we covered the ground well, we took charge of the game. (On Johnny Sexton's record) He scored on a move worked on in training. He broke the record with a superb attempt. He will talk about it better than me, but I already know that he will tell you that he is only doing his job. But I tell you, you have to work hard to get there. It’s more than a matter of points, he’s a leader.”
