Leinster fly-half Johnny Sexton has poked fun at international teammates Conor Murray and Simon Zebo, or 'the cartel' as they are known in Irish international circles.

Sexton said that the Munster pair are among the chief pranksters in Irish camp and that he has blamed the two in the past for burning his laundry as well as removing items from my car.

In a pre-match interview ahead of the Guinness PRO14 Round 6 matchup between Leinster and Munster at the Aviva Stadium, Sexton told Sky Sports Graham Simmons:

"It's two absolute muppets - Murray and Zebo, they call themselves that. They have a couple of cronies that hang with them. They just play pranks on lads in camp.

"They burnt all my laundry last year. That's the type of thing they get up to. I come out, my car will be open, all my stuff will be missing."
