Simon Zebo responds to booing from the Ulster fans
Racing 92 and Ireland full-back Simon Zebo was upset by a section of Ulster fans booing him during his side's 26-22 loss at the Kingspan Stadium on Saturday.
Zebo scored in the loss but was booed by some fans when he received the ball with the former Munster full-back a bit dumbfounded as to why he received such an aggressive reception given his years of service within Irish Rugby.
The Cork native took to his Instagram and said:
"A tough place to play but great team spirit from the brothers,important 2 points on the road..
"Also I hope my ears deceived me with some comments directed my way from the crowd..
"Django wins in the end ✌?"
Zebo previously riled up the Ulster players during Racing's 44-12 drubbing of the northern province in Paris back in October.
Zebo pointed at full-back Michael Lowry before crossing for Racing's's fifth try of the match.

The 28-year-old apologised for the incident and said that he wouldn't want his kids to follow his example.
“I’m still sick about it, I had to wait 10 minutes outside the dressing room to give him my jersey and apologise again.
“I’ve played the game for I don’t know how many years and I’ve never done anything like that, I just got too excited.
“I probably built up the game a bit too much in my head this week and let the emotions get the better of me for a few seconds.
“You live and learn, I wouldn’t want my kids to do that I’m and I’m very disappointed with myself.
“I feel shit, but he’s a lovely fella. As soon as I went over to apologise he was very receptive, we’d a good chat after the game. There’s no ill feelings or anything.
“These things happen, but I’d prefer if they didn’t happen to me.”
Booing Simon Zebo is absolutely pathetic behavior. Toxic #ULSvR92

He was as he always is. I am a big fan and didn’t really like the booing even if it was only pantomime
