Simon Zebo On The Verge Of Amazing Munster Landmark
Simon Zebo has been in excellent form for both club and country this season.
The winger stands on the verge of becoming the first Munster player to score a half-century of tries for the province. When you consider he’s yet to start a 100 games for the province, it really is a remarkable achievement from the Corkman.
Zebo has started 98 times for Munster and come off the bench 11 times, and he’s still on 26 years of age. It truly is a world class strike rate and is made even more impressive when you realise his record in the Europe is even better than that of the PRO12.
His 49th try came in Munster’s thrashing over Irish counterparts Leinster, and anyone who has seen that finish, will tell you it’s straight out of the top drawer, with the winger finishing in the corner in what looked to be an impossible task.
Zebo is Munster’s all-time leading try scorer, having overtaken Munster legend Anthony Horgan’s tally of 41, achieved in 146 games. No doubt he will be hoping to achieve his 50th this weekend as Munster make an emotional trip to Paris to play Racing 92 in their rescheduled clash.
