Simon Zebo has been tearing it up this season since moving to France and joining Racing 92. The former Munster fullback has been scoring tries for fun and added to his tally yesterday as Racing defeated Ulster 44-12 in the Champions Cup.
Zebo’s try was the icing on the cake for the French side, coming in the 75th minute as they made light work of an Ulster side who started the game in Paris so well.

But the Ireland international got a little too carried away in the celebrations – pointing at Ulster’s Michael Lowry and taunting him as he went in at the corner, much to the dismay of referee Nigel Owens.
The Welsh referee pulled Zebo on the day and suggested Zebo apologise, which he did promptly, realising his mistake. He also posted a classy tweet, admitting he was ‘disappointed’ in himself for his actions.
Really sorry to Michael Lowry
Got too excited and I don’t do stuff like that as long as I’ve played.
I wouldn’t like my kids doing that and I’m disappointed in myself ..
Made a mistake, not in the spirit of the game..keep up the great work
