Watch: Simon Zebo scores stunning hat-trick against Perpignan

Simon Zebo crossed for a brilliant hat-trick in Racing's 52-14 win over Perpignan on Saturday.

Zebo scored three of Racing's eight tries on the day to take his season tally to 11, just one score behind Top 14 leader and teammate Virimi Vakatawa.

Racing sit in fourth place in the Top 14 with 14 wins from 25 games and the Parisian club are poised for the play-offs with their final game of the regular season set for next weekend away to Agen.

Zebo left Munster for Paris last summer and he said that his first season in the French capital has been refreshing.

"I miss the craic and my Ireland team-mates, just the banter between training and the mischief we get up to when we have time to kill. That’s what I miss most," Zebo wrote in his Paddy Power blog earlier this year.

"But it’s been incredible for me in France thus far. The atmosphere in the grounds is amazing. playing away from home is superb and the Racing stadium is out of this world.

"It’s all totally different from a rugby point-of-view. The style of rugby we play at Racing is very exciting, and Paris as a city is great as well. When you combine everything – the rugby, the lifestyle, the environment of the club – it’s certainly been eye-opening and refreshing."
