Dan Carter and Casey Laulala linked for a stunning Racing counter-attack try

The Parisians are leading the Top 14 after a big win against rivals Stade Français.

RACING 92 RECORDED an impressive 34-16 bonus-point win away to Parisian rivals Stade Français on Saturday as they retained their lead of the Top 14.

Mike Phillips, Johan Goosen and Brice Dulin all scored tries in the victory, but it was Kiwi out-half Dan Carter’s effort that stole the show.

Carter’s former All Blacks teammate Joe Rokocoko sparked the counter-attack from inside in the Racing 22, before Antonie Claassen and former Munster centre Casey Laulala linked up superbly to feed Carter for the try.

Racing defence coach Ronan O’Gara will have been pleased to watch his men limit the home team to just one try in Saturday’s encounter. Indeed, O’Gara’s defence has conceded the fewest number of tries of any team in the Top 14 this season, 20 in 17 games.

It was the Racing attack that shone brightest on Saturday, however, as 34-year-old Carter led another outstanding effort.
