Still interested in knowing more about the game? Here’s our bluffers guide on Racing 92…

THE OPPOSITION

Racing 92 was formed in 2001 with the amalgamation of Racing Club de France and US Métro. They were called Racing Métro 92 until 2015 when they changed to Racing 92. “92” is the number of Hauts-de-Seine, the area of Paris which houses their striking roofed stadium the Paris La Défense Arena. They have an aristocratic past and have on occasion played wearing pink bow ties with champagne at half time. 

They last won the French Top 14 in 2016 and have recently finished Champions Cup runners up three times including last season to Exeter Chiefs.

NOTABLE PLAYERS

Racing 92 have a trend of employing brilliant fly halves and Scotland maestro Finn Russell is the latest in a line that includes Jonny Sexton, Dan Carter and Juan Martin Hernandez. 

While expensive imports have always been targeted by Racing, they’ve placed a lot of emphasis on French talent in recent times. Look out for the rambunctious hooker Camille Chat and in the backs, the spectacular pair of Virimi Vakatawa and Teddy Thomas will be looking to get on the end of Russell’s passes.

FIXTURE HISTORY

Harlequins and Racing 92 were paired in the same European pool back in 2013, with Quins doing the double over the fancied French club. The first match was played in Nantes in front of a 29,000 strong crowd with Harlequins winning 328, completing the double by winning the return leg in London 17-3.
