Simon Zebo is going to be wearing the sweetest jersey in France next season

Shame about the sponsor getting bumped down the jersey but it's another beauty.

Racing 92 rarely put out a bad jersey and their three offerings for 2018/19 are right up there.

Last season's home kit was top of our list for Top 14 jerseys and we credited it as one of the best in Europe.

Leinster look to have the 'Best in Europe' crown locked up for 2018/19 - with their superb adidas home kit - but Racing are not far off the pace.

Ireland internationals Donnacha Ryan and Simon Zebo are already back in pre-season training with the Parisians and they are enjoying their reunion.

The former Munster stars will be looking well when they line out in the new home kit on September 1 against Clermont. Toulon are up first, in late August, but Clermont are the first Top 14 side to visit the U Arena in Paris.

Scotland outhalf Finn Russell has joined the Racing squad so head coaches Laurent Labit and Laurent Travers will be aiming to take them one step further than last season's Champions Cup final loss to Leinster.

The French side will definitely be going into battle with a spiffy kit, and one that is plastered with more sponsors than an Indy Car. Aside from the makers' brand - Le Coq Sportif - there are four sponsors included on the front with more on the back.

The crest, if you are looking for it, is bottom right.

The away and alternate kits don't quite grab hold of you as much as the distinctive light blue and white hoops.

We're looking forward to seeing Zebo, Ryan & Co. in the fresh kit next season.
