Your wrong ,and tryiong to put proffesional club and international standards on a club whitch by its very nature will never be like a proffesional club or a national team .The players are from all over the world and really have just 1 week to prepare thats 1-maybe 2 training sessions.Given that the Barbarains recent record is very good ,in some cases better than national teams in terms of beating the best 6-8 rugby nations atm better than Wales and Ireland against SH opposition better than SA and Australia against NH opposition ,and all that from a scratch team.Also your forgetting the Barbarains games are warm up games for touring teams and alot of young talant is usually blooded,also they allow fans to say farewell to some legends of the game ie V.Matfeild last year -S.Williams this.They are also a means for international players who because of unions [polixcyies to show they can still do it ie J.Afora M.Mulliania S.Brits ect

@BigRugbyBalls... Such a joke that in their last 8 outings spanning the last 3 years, they have won 5 of them, having beaten the All Blacks, the Springboks, England, Ireland & Wales...

Any team with Heymans in it gets a nod of approval from me, one of the most underrated players of the last decade. Why Toulouse allowed him to go last season I still can't understand. Hope he goes well tommorrow.
Also some actual talent starting at 10 finally, Contepomi should have started on sunday.

This is a good barbarian team but not a great one it's a pity that the top 14 and the super 15 is still on because they are the players that make up the great barbarian teams of the past imagine if they could put out 1 the beast 2 Bismarck 3 Carl haymans 4 brad thorn 5 whitelock 6 kaino 7 pocock 8 spies 9 genia 10 carter 11 habana 12 fonana 13 sonny bill Williams 14 Digby ioane 15 israel dagg and that's not to mention Beale james o Connor cooper Richie maccaw Kieren reid mealamu Conrad smith cory Jane burger brussow de villiers patrick lambie medard clerc hardinaquay rougerie if only we can som how fit this kind of a barbarian team to face the home nations in the calendar year maybe some time in November or December

@Bigrugbyballs... What a sweeping statement, how do you work that one out? Twickenham was pretty much sold out for the Baa Baas game against England I don't the the bean counters would find that a joke at all. I imagine you are probably one of those guys who hates the Lions tours as well and thinks they are a waste of time also. Sad.

The Barbarians are in serious danger of becoming a joke.
