The maul in rugby in many peoples eyes can be a thing of absolute beauty when perfected – and Racing Metro did just that this past weekend. Famously perfected by Munster in their glory years, accompanied by a solid lineout a clinical maul can win trophies. It’s as simple as that.
Juandré Kruger claimed the Scarlets re-start and the Racing forwards then went to work- setting up the maul and rumbling forward for quite astonishing gains. 65 metres later, the Scarlets cut their losses and dragged the maul down. Unfortunately, Jonny Sexton failed to reward his forwards’ excellent work from the resulting place kick.
The game finished in a 26-26 draw, leaving Racing second in Pool 4 after two rounds of European action. Their focus is now back on the Top 14 and the Parisian derby against Stade Français on Saturday night.
