Watch: Finn Russell assists three tries in Racing 92's victory

Racing 92 secured a 14-54 victory over Agen at the weekend as they ran in eight tries to Agen's two.

The win saw Racing 92 end the weekend in third place overall with British & Irish Lions flyhalf Finn Russell assisting a hat-trick of tries. 


The Parisian side romped through the relegation bound club with Gael Fickou scoring a hattrick for the side in white and blue while no.8 Yoan Tanga scoring twice. Simon Zebo, Teddy Baubigny and Donovan Taofifenua all added a try of their own as they powered to victory. 

Agen played 45 minutes of the game with a man down with Vincent Farre getting a straight red card but the game was gone before then as Racing surged to a 26-0 lead after 30 minutes.

Russell's first assist was for his good mate Simon Zebo. He threw an excellent skip pass out to Zebo cutting out three fellow Racing 92 players as the Irish International had an easy walk in for the try.


That try gave Racing a 33-0 lead at half time. 


A big hit early in the first half saw the ball spill loose and Fickou pounced to toe on the ball and score a  simple try. 

Russell assisted Gael Fickou for the Frenchman's second try. The flyhalf received the ball from an offload from Maxime Machenaud and he produced a nice behind the back pass to Fickou. 

The centre dummied a pass out wide to Simon Zebo before going hard at the line taking in three defenders to score.

Fickou's hattrick try came off a nice pass from Russell.

The Lions #10 ran into two Agen defenders around the Racing 92 10m line before offloading in contact to Gael Fickou. 

Fickou charged through the defence and again dummied the pass to Simon Zebo to run in the hattrick.
