“The crowd represents so much about what the team are trying to do.”
Simon Zebo is heading for pastures new next season, as he is set to join Racing 92. The Corkonian has already written himself into Munster folklore in recent years, as he continues to improve as a player.
The 28-year-old has amassed 295 points across 139 appearances in the famous red jersey, and before he departs for Paris, he will be aiming to sign off with silverware, as Munster are gunning for their third European title.
Today, Munster take on Toulon in the quarter-final of the European Champions Cup. Regardless of result, this will be the southern province’s last time playing at Thomond Park in this season’s competition. By extension, it is possibly the last time that Zebo will line out for Munster in Europe at the famous Limerick stadium.
Speaking ahead of the occasion with Sky Sports, Zebo revealed the venue has a special place in his heart.
“You always know there are going to be goosebumps going through your body at some point in the game because the crowd are going to be going 90.”
Tomorrow, @SimonZebo starts for @MunsterRugby against @RCTOfficiel, in what might be his last @ChampionsCup match at Thomond Park. Here’s what the ground means to him… #MUNvRCT #RedArmy #16thMan #SUAF pic.twitter.com/ceMGrfvH8n
