Simon Zebo Posts Poignant Message As He Bids Farewell To Life As A Munster Player

Bye for now.

Simon Zebo has officially played his final game for Munster. Yesterday’s one-point PRO14 semi-final defeat to rivals Leinster brought the curtain down on a truly remarkable career at Munster for the 28-year-old.

Zebo will pack his bags and head off to France over the summer having signed a deal with French giants Racing 92 for next season. He leaves Munster as their all-time top try-scorer and joint European top try-scored alongside the late great Anthony Foley.

After yesterday’s heartbreaking defeat Zebo left the door open for a return to his native province down the line, stating he did not want his last game to be “losing to Leinster”.

“Hopefully it’s not [my last game]. But if it is, then my heart is probably down at the bottom of my stomach. It’s not an easy thing to think about. I don’t want my last Munster game to be losing to Leinster so hopefully, it’s not my last.”

Later in a social media post, Zebo thanked Munster for letting him fulfil his dreams.

“Signing off with a heavy heart..” Zebo wrote.

“Thank you Munster Rugby for letting me fulfil my dreams in playing for and representing our great club..”

“Thank you to the players,staff and supporters for accepting me for who I am and letting me be me..”

“Hope it’s not the end just bye for now”
