Patrick Lambie heads off to the French Top 14 after a three-year deal agreement with Racing 92.

The former Sharks and Springbok flyhalf was once an integral part of the South African rugby setup, playing 56 matches in the Green and Gold and scoring 153 points in the process.

Lambie, who has been very much on the sidelines this year, suffered a concussion during the Sharks Super Rugby's loss to the Kings after colliding with team mate Rhyno Smith. Prior to that incident, he was out for six months during SA's test against Ireland. This after CJ Stander was shown a straight red card after his attempted charge down on Lambie's chip kick saw his side quadricep collide with Lambie's head, knocking him out.

Lambie hails from Michaelhouse and was one of the youngest players to wear the Green and Gold at age 20 when he made his debut against Ireland in 2010. He scored 1462 points during his career at the Sharks, scoring 30 tries in the process, Lambie was once South Africa's golden boy.

Lambie's early release from SARU and Sharks obligations has deemed him free to join Racing 92, and according to Racing 92 he's scheduled to join on the 1st of November 201 with his contract ending in 2021.

Lambie joins the long list of players who have set their sites on a new challenge abroad.
