On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Simon Zebo to discuss his imminent move to Paris to play for Racing 92.

Simon explains why he decided to leave Munster and make the move to the Top 14, and how much he is looking forward to playing with one of Europe's best teams.

Despite being dropped by Joe Schmidt after the move was announced, Zebo is still holding out hope of making the World Cup squad, although he hasn't spoken to the Ireland head coach since his departure was confirmed.

Zebo also reflects on his time at Munster and reveals the big regret he has after leaving the province.

Luke and Will also discuss Joey Carbery's move to Munster, and Luke thinks that it may work out differently to how Irish rugby want it to.
