Simon Zebo’s Latest Comments Show The Kind Of Confidence He & Munster Now Have
There’s something very special happening down in Munster right now.
The southern province are currently on a seven game unbeaten run, and head into this weekend’s return clash with Leicester at Welford Road on the back of a 38-0 hammering at Thomond Park on Saturday.
Munster’s Irish contingent came back into the squad and picked up right where they left off in November, with the likes of CJ Stander, Conor Murray and Simon Zebo playing absolute stormers once again on Saturday.
Speaking ahead of the game, Zebo has lined out his ambitions personally going forward, and top of that list is to grab as many tries as possible and reach an unbelievable standard of a try in every two games.
Zebo’s latest try against the Tigers was his 48th try in 107 games and is already Munster’s leading all-time try scorer, but he’s not done just yet.
“It’s lovely to score tries for Munster. It is something I wanted to do ever since I was a little boy so to be all-time top try-scorer by 25 is something I am pretty proud of.” Zebo said.
“Every time I get to cross the line is a great honour and hopefully I have a couple more in me.
“I want to have a 1 in 2 [tries to game] ratio. That would be something. I’m not too far off; just need a couple of hat-tricks.”
Munster and Ireland are on a roll at the moment and with Zebo also becoming a father to his son Jacob, 18 months ago, the Corkman couldn’t be in a better place right now.
“The smile is back on my face, which is always good for my rugby. I’m having fun out there on the pitch and enjoying every time I get my hands on the ball.”
Let’s hope Zebo will be smiling come the final whistle at Welford Road this weekend.
