WATCH as Racing 92’s star centre Virimi Vakatawa went from hero to zero briefly after costing his side a much-needed try in his side’s 29-23 loss at home to Toulon in the latest round of the Top 14.

The blunder occurred as Vakatawa casually jogged into the in-goal, failing to put the ball down quickly as Toulon wing Gabin Villiere snuck up behind him. The ball was dislodged in the tackle and bounced over the dead-ball line.

The would-be try came after brilliant lead-up work from Racing’s wing Teddy Thomas, who drew three Toulon players before throwing a basketball-style offload back inside over the top to Vakatawa.
