Simon Zebo In Top 14 Team Of 2018, Despite Only Joining Six Months Ago

Simon Zebo In Top 14 Team Of 2018, Despite Only Joining Six Months Ago

Fourth in the Top 14 table, five points clear top of their Champions Cup pool, it is a good time for Racing 92 and their new full-back Simon Zebo who has been recognised for his recent showings by selection in Midol's Top 14 team of 2018.

Since moving to Paris Zebo has enjoyed an exceptional period of form, striking up a fruitful partnership with Finn Russell and Teddy Thomas. The 28-year-old was selected at full-back by the French media outlet in a team that also includes Australian Liam Gill and South African François Steyn.

It is a remarkable achievement for Zebo given he only departed Munster last summer and thus only had half the calendar year to impress.

There was also an acknowledgement of another former Munster man, with Donnacha Ryan cited as a contender unlucky to miss out in the final 15.

Racing are in action tomorrow, as they prepare to face Bordeaux Bègles in the Top 14.
