PICTURES: Racing 92 pay fitting tribute to Lambie

Cape Town - French club Racing 92 paid tribute to former Springbok Pat Lambie in their changeroom over the weekend.

The 28-year-old confirmed his retirement from rugby earlier this year, with a series of head injuries and the resulting medical advice leaving him with no choice but to cut his career short.

Lambie spent several months on the sidelines after taking a knock to the head in a collision with Ireland flank CJ Stander in a Test at Newlands in June 2016.

He struggled with concussion-related symptoms since that incident at in Cape Town and again suffered a heavy head knock when he collided with Sharks team-mate Rhyno Smith during a Super Rugby clash against the Southern Kings in May 2017.

After signing for Racing 92 at the end of 2017, Lambie signed a new four-year deal with the club in September 2018, but struggled with injuries, most notably an injury to his eye socket and knee.

Lambie, who operated at flyhalf and fullback, played 56 Tests for the Springboks between 2010 and 2016.

The Racing 92 players gave Lambie a fitting tribute in their changeroom following their 50-14 thrashing of La Rochelle over the weekend.
