Wales flanker Ross Moriarty has claimed that Johnny Sexton receives extra protection from referees.
Moriarty was sin-binned for a late-hit on Sexton in Leinster's 52-10 victory over the Dragons a fortnight ago.

He told Scrum V on BBC Wales that there would have been no penalty had the players' roles been reversed.
"Some may say it was harsh, some may say it was fair, but if Johnny did that against me in that game, I know for a fact he would not have had anything happen to him," said Moriarty.
😬 "I think rugby is getting very soft"
"It's nice to see little players running around making a fool of big players but when a big player gets hold of a smaller one, there's always a big scene.
He added: "I think rugby is going soft which is quite sad to see."
