Racing 92 remain unbeaten after bonus point success

Racing 92 sit top of Heineken Champions Cup Pool 4 after a pulsating 36-26 bonus point victory over Leicester Tigers in Paris. 

The match started with some stunning running rugby from Racing and they won a penalty that was booted towards the corner. From the resulting line-out, play was spread and reached Virimi Vakatawa dived over for the first try, with Finn Russell slotting the conversion. 

Racing again spread the ball wide minutes later after Matt Toomua slipped at a crucial time, allowing the French side to create the overlap, finding the dynamic Juan Imhoff who jogged towards the corner for a simple score. 

Leicester finally won some possession in the Racing 22 on 15 minutes, driving an excellent scrum, with the ball finding Jonah Holmes who beat his man and sauntered over the try line. George Ford would add the extras. 

A stunning offload from Finn Russell to Simon Zebo opened up a hole for Racing’s third try, after some powerful work from EPCR Player of the Year Leone Nakarawa. Russell – who created the try – slotted over the conversion. 

Barely 30 minutes were on the clock when Racing added a bonus point try.  

Nakarawa fought his way past several Leicester men, driving Racing up to the posts before a simple off-load to Baptiste Chuzenoux, who dotted down with ease. 

A nice drive from Leicester took them close to Racing’s try line, before No.8 Sione Kalamafoni cheekily dived over two Racing men at the breakdown, touching down for a second score for the visitors and a sixth try of a pulsating first half. 

In the second half, further tries were added by Leicester’s Manu Tuilagi and Adam Thompstone as well as Racing wing Olivier Klemenczak in a scrappier 40 minutes. 

The two sides will clash again next weekend at Welford Road, with Racing 92 looking to make it four wins from as many Heineken Champions Cup matches this season.
