Growing up in Ireland, former Leinster and Rebels hooker, Tom Sexton, brings six seasons of world rugby experience to the Force in 2016. A former Irish Schoolboys captain, Sexton played in the Ireland U19 and U20 representative teams before being offered an academy contract at Leinster. He travelled to Australia to join the Rebels in 2013, however an ACL injury ruled him out of the entire 2014 Super Rugby season. He will look to bring his hard, traditional Northern Hemisphere style of play to the Force and help anchor down the front row through his powerful scrummaging and lock-down defence.
