Simon Zebo scores a try, then gets telling off from Nigel Owens for showboating

This was very cheeky from the Cork man...

It just was not meant to be for Ulster as they fell to a 44-12 in Paris against Racing 92.

Ulster gave their French counterparts an early scare running over an early try through back-up scrum half David Shanahan.

If you think that try was good, you need to see their second.

Billy Burns was influential as he executed two beautiful cross field kicks that lead to an easy try for Jacob Stockdale.

This could well be the try of the weekend.

That was as good as it got though for the Ulster men, as Racing found another gear and rallied back to lead at half time on a scoreline of 20-12.

The second half didn't get much better for the Irish side as Racing continued to twist the screw and cement a valuable home win.

Scotland's Finn Russell was in tantalising form for the French side. He tormented Ulster all day long from place kicks and from open play.

This lovely off load to Teddy Thomas was a sight to behold.

Despite the game being out of reach for Ulster, the French men never let up. Former Munster and Ireland international Simon Zebo finished off a great move to put the final nail in the coffin.

However, Zebo was caught taunting Ulster's Michael Lowry before crossing over the line, a move that got him a stern telling off from referee Nigel Owens.

It was a brave display by Ulster who can hold their heads high, today they came up against one of the best sides in Europe in their own backyard, and equipped themselves well.
