Sexton reflects on Champions Cup heartbreak with 'big regret'

Johnny Sexton reflected on the European Champions Cup final with "big regret" after Saracens dethroned Leinster with a 20-10 victory at St James' Park on Saturday.

Sarries roared back from 10-0 down in a ferocious decider in Newcastle to regain a trophy they won in 2016 and 2017.

   

"It's a big regret and you'd love to go and play the match again, but you don't," said Sexton.

"You never want that to happen in a final, you want to have no regrets.

"And we'll look back at some key moments, especially at the start of the second half, when I just felt we had the upper hand and we didn't quite capitalise on it."
