Racing show they are still in top form

David Wallace

Even with a key PRO14 clash taking place tonight, it's hard not to think about Racing 92 next weekend.

Looking at their quarter-final win in Clermont, they were very impressive - especially when Dan Carter came on and made a big impact.

He ran the ball well and was such an attacking threat. Afterwards he said he was told to run the ball because they felt Clermont were tiring and he certainly exploited that. You'd expect them to come with a similar tactic against Munster.

Last weekend Racing carried their form into a 17-13 win against Toulon, and after the loss in Paris in the pool stages, we know the challenge that awaits. 

It's always tough to win in France but it's something that Munster have done before and the memories of Bordeaux in 2000 will be fond for Munster supporters.

I don't know whether the Racing 92 supporters will travel for the game considering it's taking place 600km away in the south of the country, so hopefully it will feel like a Munster home game. 

While ROG is now working in the south island of New Zealand his legacy is still there in Racing and they'll how Munster tick. And we all recall the impact Donnacha Ryan had in January when he was incredible.
