Sebastien Chabal's 70m sprint try against Perpignan

Sebastien Chabal's 70m sprint try against Perpignan

Racing Metro went down 23-16 to Perpignan in the Top 14 on the weekend, but managed to pick up a losing bonus point after a late runaway try from France forward, Sebastien Chabal.

Perpignan had possession with time up on the clock but coughed it up when going for the scoring pass, allowing Racing to pounce and set everybodys favourite caveman up for the 70m sprint.

A fairly feeble attempt from Rudi Coetzee gave him the space to get going, but the gas he showed was reminiscent of the two great tries he scored in the 2007 World Cup against Namibia.

Chabal was known as the highest paid rugby player in the world until recently, but now with talk of Dan Carter joining him at Racing Metro, that will change.

Carter is reported to be joining the club for a fee around 1.2 million per season, with the three year deal on the table, although nothing is confirmed yet.

Metro retain their second place on the table thanks to the losing bonus point that was achieved through the conversion from current flyhalf, Jonathan Wisniewski. Perpignan also kept their hopes of squeezing into the top six alive.
