Racing Metro narrowly defeated a struggling Bayonne side 23-19 at the Stade Jean Dauger in the Top 14 last week. This is a short clip of a nice try from the match.
Flyhalf Jonathan Wisniewski kicked four penalties and spent ten minutes in the sinbin in what was an eventful afternoon for him.
He contributed towards the first try for the Paris based side though, as Bayonne opposite number Craig Gower kicked a poorly directed high ball that Wisniewski collected well before off-loading to number 8 on the day, Sebastien Chabal.
Chabal has often been required to do the grunt work up front when playing in the second row, but has shown once again that he's more than capable of switching to number eight when needed.
On this occasion the neat pass by Wieniewski set him off on a run that was reminiscent of his great try against Namibia in the 2007 World Cup. He showed that at the age of 32, he certainly isn't lacking in the pace department.
Big Fijian flanker Jone Qovu Naliko accepted a neatly timed pass and did the rest as he charged towards the line to finish off a quality Racing Metro try.
Excellent Chabal tries vs Namibia 2007
