Our tribute that celebrates the Barbarians Women’s team historic first match, 19-0 victory, against Munster on 10th November 2017.
Usually referred to as the Barbarians and nicknamed the Baa-Baas, is an invitational rugby union team based in Britain and Ireland. TheBaa-Baas play in black and white hoops, though players wear the socks from their own club strip.
Membership is by invitation and the only qualifications considered when issuing an invitation are the standard of a player’s skills and their behaviour both on and off the field. As of 2011, players from 31 countries had played for them. Traditionally at least one uncapped player is selected for each match.
They traditionally played six annual encounters: Penarth, Cardiff, Swansea and Newport during their Easter Tour; a game with Leicester traditionally on 27 December and the Mobbs Memorial Match against East Midlands in the spring. In 1948, the Barbarians were invited to face Australia as part of that team’s tour of Britain, Ireland and France. Although initially designed as a fund raiser towards the end of the tour, the encounter became a popular fixture for most touring nations to Britain, and a Barbarian tradition.
On 29 May 2011, during halftime of the Barbarians’ match against England at Twickenham, they and their founder William Percy Carpmael were honoured for their unique contributions to the sport with induction to the IRB Hall of Fame.
In October 2017 a women’s team was announced for the first time in the Barbarian’s history. Their first match was against Munster which they won 19-0 on 10th November 2017.
