The form of Wales No.10 Rhys Priestland during the RBS 6 Nations, the emergence of England’s Owen Farrell and the return to form of veteran World Cup winner Jonny Wilkinson for Toulon means Sexton is in a race against time to impress Lions boss Warren Gatland.
The Ireland outhalf last played for the province in the Heineken Cup victory away to Exeter in January and takes over from Ian Madigan, who has been rested for the encounter.
Sexton’s inclusion is one of 13 changes made by Joe Schmidt from the 22-16 victory over Munster at Thomond Park last Saturday, with just Brian O’Driscoll and Isa Nacewa remaining in the starting line-up.
