It was a very harsh card, because realistically he couldn't get away, but the ball was unplayable because Sexton didn't release and roll away after the tackle. Killing the ball like that is always a penalty, but doing it on the try line is the reason for the card.
Well done Wales. Thoroughly deserved victory. Ireland were awful for the most part, just couldn't break down the Wales defence. And being practically on the Wales line in a maul with 10 minutes to go and we give away a stupid strawberry floating penalty. I'd say Sexton cost us 17 of those 22 points with his fuckery. Some of those cross-field kicks were Now, I wish he had stayed off when he got injured early on. Line-out was appalling, too.
Those few minutes before the Wales try where Ireland kept playing it sideways along their own 10 metre line going nowhere, that was one of the worst things I've ever seen from Ireland. I was actually screaming at the tv for them to do something else.
