Johnny Sexton wants Leinster young guns to be ruthless in European glory hunt

Johnny Sexton thought he was on easy street after guiding Leinster to a remarkable comeback victory for a third European crown in four years.guns of glory woodNow he wants the province's young guns to use him and the older generation as a lesson in seizing the day.Sexton now recalls how confident he was that the winning streak would continue after that dramatic Heineken Cup final success over Northampton in 2012.Since then they have won the Challenge Cup and two PRO12 titles - but nothing in almost four years. "I thought after we won three in four years, this was easy," conceded Sexton."But five years later you're sat here waiting to get to another final, really."The younger lads, you have to make sure they know to make the most of it when things are going well."Sexton recognises that even if his career finish line is a while off yet, chances to lift big prizes are limited."Yeah, of course," he said.Smiling, he added: "When you're coming to the last five or six years of your career you know you've got limited opportunities."You want to make the most of every season and achieve certain things."I remember when Brian, Shane Horgan and guys like that who were coming to the end, they were dragging along the younger lads."I even remember the coaches saying, 'It's not everyday you're going to play with Brian O'Driscoll and Shane Horgan, so you young lads don't forget this is a good opportunity'."That's what it's like now. These young lads think they've 10 years in front of them and they'll win loads of trophies."But it doesn't always work like that." However Sexton is upbeat about the province's future - in marked contrast to when he returned from Racing in 2015, when he discovered that Leinster's winning culture had eroded. Now Leinster, unbeaten in seven games, are favourites to land a home Champions Cup quarter-final as they prepare for the final pool games against Glasgow and Montpellier."Yeah it's been great," the Dubliner said.
