    Always enjoyable to watch Barbarians, even more with 3 Connacht players within the XV

    Special mention to Denis Buckley who deserves playing such an international game, and to Pat Lam who picked a very nice team

    Replacements: T Polota-Nau (Leicester and Australia), L Uhila (Clermont Auvergne), R Herrera (Stade Francais and Argentina), J Tekori (Toulouse and Samoa), N Latu (Newcastle and Tonga), G Laidlaw (Clermont Auvergne and Scotland), L McAlister (Toulon and New Zealand), M Fekitoa (Toulon and New Zealand).

    England: E Daly (Wasps); J May (Leicester), H Trinder (Gloucester), P Francis (Northampton), M Brown (Harlequins); G Ford (Leicester, co-capt), B Youngs (Leicester); J Marler (Harlequins), J Singleton (Worcester), K Sinckler (Harlequins), E Stooke (Bath), J Launchbury (Wasps), C Robshaw (Harlequins, co-capt), T Curry (Sale), Z Mercer (Bath).

    (Toulon) Baa Baas would be more accurate tbh


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,955 ✭✭✭connachta


    If you add Clermont, Stade and La Rochelle players, it's a revenge team after missed seasons!


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    quick start Baabaas


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ✭✭✭ScrubsfanChris


    Could be a long day for England.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    2 already for Ashton (first wasn't really his though!)

    Ashton making a mockery of the England team


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,180 ✭✭✭✭AdamD


    That was fantastic by Ashton


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ✭✭✭ScrubsfanChris


    This is rugby porn


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    Impressed by Ford making that tackle, although think he tried to knock Niyi out almost immediately after.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    Embarrassing for Eddie Jones. Joke plays working well.

    We'll be on players taking the conversions for their own scores soon, like the Legends' games.

    England getting stuffed


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,745 ✭✭✭laugh


    Zero defence rugby.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    game on


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ✭✭✭ScrubsfanChris


    There was a BaaBaas player taken out way off the ball there


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    Ashton hat trick. Vito's offload was ridiculous.

    Russell did well popping it off the floor too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    Tackling less than optional I think!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ✭✭✭ScrubsfanChris


    About 9 England players offside at the kickoff there


  • Subscribers Posts: 40,495 ✭✭✭✭sydthebeat


    41 points in 27 mins of rugby


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,180 ✭✭✭✭AdamD


    Curry quite literally sitting on the ground as he turned that over


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    Lads its a Baa Baas game, the rules are 'relaxed' for the spectacle.

    Best thing about this game is the calls to include ashton that will inevitably follow.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ✭✭✭ScrubsfanChris


    Score line looks like an 80 minute game of sevens


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Jonnie Hammond is the commentator here right?

    Always liked him, I presume if Sky keep the Championship then he'll stay but he'd be a great poach for Premier Sports.


  • Registered Users Posts: 116 ✭✭Chex LeMeneux


    That is outrageous!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Audibly exhaled when I heard Laidlaw was coming on, but in fairness to him looks like he's got into the spirit of the game


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    The BaaBaas centres have been hilariously good


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,799 ✭✭✭budhabob


    Gotta love the fun the baabaas have, lobbe squirting kaysar in the face while being interviewing and giggling like a school girl


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02


    oh Tipuric. amazing

    Knock on for me though

    George Ford has good gas!


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,815 ✭✭✭✭emmet02
