Simon Zebo continues his good form and scores again for Racing

Jack O'Toole

Former Munster full-back Simon Zebo touched down for his second try of the pre-season for Racing 92 in the Parisians’ 14-8 win over an Argentina XV in Tbilisi, Georgia on Friday.

Zebo capitalised off a Racing scrum just inside the Argentinian 22 to race up the inside of fly-half Finn Russell before receiving a perfectly timed inside ball from the Scot to shoot through the gap and cross for his second try in his new colours.

It was a nice score from the Ireland utility and follows on from his scintillating 65 metre try against Brazil in his first game for the Champions Cup finalists last week.

In an interview with RTÉ’s Against The Head before his move, Zebo opened up on why he decided to swap Munster for Paris.

“The opportunity to play for Racing 92 came up and I had to weigh up a lot of things, family, the age profile of my kids and where I was in my career. It just came down to timing,” said Munster’s all-time leading scorer.

“It’s only an hour away from Cork and it’s a really competitive club with exciting and talented players.

“I’ve no intention of going to France and chilling out and being a squad player for the rest of my contract. I fully intend on pushing as hard as I do here in Munster. I want to win silverware.”
