Test Series - Ireland XV vs Barbarians.
Let's present some infos that not every one knows them about the Barbarians.
"The Barbarian Football Club, usually referred to as the Barbarians and nicknamed the "Baa-Baas", is an invitational rugby union team based in Britain. The Barbarians play in traditional black and white hoops, though players retain the socks from their "home" club strip.
Membership is by invitation and the only qualifications considered when issuing an invitation are that the player's rugby is of a high enough standard and secondly that he should behave himself on and off the field. Being asked to become a Barbarian is an honor and not one restricted to British players; in addition to all four of the Home Nations, players from 27 other countries have worn Barbarian colors. Traditionally at least one uncapped player is selected for each match."
Ireland ended the Six Nations competition on 3rd spot winning 2, drawing 1 and losing 2, with England and Wales.
Barbarians were hammered by England 26-57 on Sunday and will try to go back on winning ways here.
