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.”
