Barbarian invasion

I celebrated My Australia Day with a rugby game. June marks the start of the international test season and the The Wallabies kicked off theirs against the Barbarians - in this picture - and I wasn't going to miss it! Plenty of entertainment as the Wallabies won the game 55-7.

The Barbarians (also known as the Baa-Baas) are an invitational team based in Britain but the players are a mix of English, Irish, New Zealand players, even with a couple of French and South African players. They share the same black and white jersey but the players keep the socks of their home club.. check them out!
