Juan Imhoff shines despite Racing loss

Juan Imhoff on a run against the Cardiff Blues on Friday
Undoubtedly 2011 has already been a great year for Argentine winger Juan Imhoff, leading try scorer in the Vodacom Cup with Pampas XV, then ripping apart the CONSUR XV scoring a hat trick before half time to win a World Cup spot, and then impressing again in the World Cup and earning a contact with Parisian side Racing-Métro. 

His 2011 continues to get better though, as only three matches into his career in France his sublime finishing prowess is already being demonstrated as he scored a beauty for Racing's 20-26 loss in the Heineken Cup against Cardiff Blues on Friday.

The initial break was created by Imhoff's fellow Puma Juan Martín Hernández who offloaded to Imhoff with 40 metres to go, Imhoff then went on a run which the rugbyrama.fr live text described as a "huge individual effort" as he broke three Cardiff tacklers to score in the corner.
