Sexton, who turns 35 on July 11, played for the Lions on his two previous tours in Australia 2013 and New Zealand 2017 and hopes to make it a touring hat-trick next year in South Africa.
Sexton was the last guest on All Blacks legend Dan Carter interview series on Instagram, where they discussed a wide range of topics, including the Irishman’s ambition to take on the Springboks in 2021.
“I’d be lying if I said it’s not something I haven’t thought about too much,” Sexton said.
It is the pinnacle of any player’s career in the Northern Hemisphere, and doing it three times would be incredibly special, but all I can really control is being in my best shape in the next three or four months, or for as long as it is. Before returning, and try to use this time positively.
I have to look at it positively and say that I hope that this time I will put my body in the best shape it has been in for some years and that it will start working from next year and see what happens.
“But it would be a dream to do it again. But it takes a lot of things to happen for that to happen. I need to play well for Leinster, I need to play well for Ireland and then I hope to put my name on the showcase for that tour.”
Sexton has played 91 tests for Ireland and six for the Lions.
