Finn Russell creates another hall of fame highlight moment in bid for Lions 2021 spot
Scotland fly-half sin Russell was yet again amazing crowds in France with a spectacular try assist for Racing 92 this weekend. Finn Russell showing all more reasons why he should be picked for the Lions.
Finn Russell has been nothing short of incredible for the Parisian team since he joined in 2018.
He was involved in a spectacular try against Bordeaux on Saturday. He kicked the ball through and then helped with an assist for the incredible try.
This try will surely keep the pressure on for Lions coach Warren Gatland as he looks to pick his Lions team to take on the Springboks in the summer.
Players such as Simon Zebo and Kurtley Beale were all involved in the try which started on their own 22m line.
The French commentary team were all lost for words as Russell decided to play the ball to the corner and then threw an outrageous pass behind his back to assist for the try.
It seems The Scotsman plays with complete confidence for Racing. There have been many questions about who the starting fly-half will be for the Lions in the summer. Players such as Dan Biggar, George Ford and Johnny Sexton are all the main candidates against the 28-year old.
Many fans joke that he is the sole reason why they have any kind of chance of doing well in the Six Nations this year.
