BOOM Finn with the pass to put Zebo in. Russell kicking the goals too (missed that though)

Finn Russell is so unique in terms of Scottish sport. He’s all class, risk and flair rather than just determination, hard work, being organised. Lovely to watch #EXEvR92

Fans could not get over how this man can just change a game in a moment.
It was Exeter’s ugly grunt vs Racing’s flair ran by the 26-year-old. Exeter would crash, crash crash until they powered over. While the French team would fling the ball side to side.
It’s the ultimate clash.
Here is the moment where Finn Russell throws the incredible pass out wide in the Champions Cup final.
Finn Russell ➡️ Simon Zebo 🔥
It’s that connection that comes good time and again for Racing 92!

t looked inevitable when Exeter won that line-out thanks to a superb chase by Nowell. Some irresistible pressure builds, despite some determined tackling, and Williams dives over from short range, in true Exeter style.
