Rugby fan recieves serious punishment after abusing Ireland wing Simon Zebo
Ulster Rugby have announced they have banned a fan for life due to abuse aimed at Irish international wing Simon Zebo during a Champions Cup clash with Racing 92.
Former Munster man Zebo said the abuse directed at him at the Kingspan Stadium during the January 12 game was not on and Ulster coach Dan McFarland called it “totally unacceptable”.

Zebo has tweeted out after the match: “I hope my ears deceived me with some comments directed my way from the crowd. #Not on – Django wins in the end.”
Django Unchained, a Quentin Tarantino film about an African-American slave, was released in 2012.
On Tuesday, an Ulster Rugby spokesperson said: “Following a robust investigation into allegations of abuse directed at Simon Zebo during the fixture versus Racing 92, Ulster Rugby has sanctioned a lifetime ban on a spectator, for breaching our stadium regulations.
