There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
Sexton is still in the pre-season phase and hopes to be back in blue for round 3 or 4 of the RaboDirect Pro12 and the young star feels there is unfinished business for Leinster and even more so for Ireland.
Winning a historic third Heineken Cup last season was tempered by the loss to the Ospreys a week later in the final of the Pro12 followed by what he called a disappointing end to the season with Ireland in New Zealand.
Sexton is now looking forward to renenergising Ireland fans with some big performances in the Guinness Series in November against South Africa and Argentina who are currently in action in the Rugby Championship.
The first round of tickets for Ireland v South Africa are sold out.
