It Looks Like Simon Zebo Has Made A Serious Impression In France So Far This Season
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Former Munster and Ireland fullback Simon Zebo has been named Top 14 signing of the season so far by Midol after getting off to an excellent start at Racing 92.
Zebo has been scoring tries almost for fun since making the move over the summer, striking up an incredible partnership with fellow new signing Finn Russell. The Corkman has 7 tries in 11 appearance so far this season, and has become a fixture for the Parisian side.
His latest try came in the win over Leicester Tigers on Sunday, linking up well once again with Russell before showing his strength to burst through an attempted tackle.

Paddy Jackson meanwhile has been named as one of the flops of the season so far. The Irishman moved to Perpignan over the summer, with the newly promoted French side still without a win in the Top 14 this season.
A few more big names among the flops, with Julian Savea so far considered the worst signing by #Midol. He did look better against Montpellier, so things looking up?
