Ending his Munster career on the slight sour note of a Champions Cup semi-final defeat, Ireland's Simon Zebo is now nearing his first competitive game with France's Racing 92.
Before that, however, there is plenty of pre-season action to allow Zebo to acclimatise to his new surroundings - not that it took him too long to find a familiar face.
Reunited with the big brother shkin Ryan 👌🏾

Touring Georgia throughout the pre-season, Simon Zebo kicked off his first appearance as a Racing player in some style.
Playing Brazil, it took the Zebo around two minutes to leave a lasting mark; breaking from inside his own half, leaving the opposition chasing, and touching down in the corner for an incredibly impressive try.

Although he'll most certainly come up against stronger opposition in the weeks and months to come, this will hopefully be a good omen for the Irishman looking to leave a mark in Paris.
