England and Saracens lock Maro Itoje has been speaking to the BBC about a range of topics, including racism in sport.
Itoje says rugby journalists are "more balanced" than their football counterparts, when reporting about individual players.
"I definitely think that rugby union reporters are a lot more fair than their football counterparts. I think they give a more accurate report about their players in the game," Itoje told Nick Robinson’s Political Thinking podcast.
"Rugby’s in a far superior place than football. In football the problem is really bad."
