Ireland beat the Barbarians - All the tries

Ireland beat the Barbarians - All the tries

Ireland and the Barbarians met last night at Kingsholm for a friendly match that served mainly as a warm up for Ireland ahead of their tour down to Australasia next month.

It wasn't the greatest performance seen by Ireland or the traditional Barbarians, but served up a few nice tries, most notably by Tommy Bowe and Shane Horgan.

The Baa Baa's looked predictably out of sorts and disjointed, and as the commentator quipped, perhaps had a bit too much of a Belgian beer hangover after their match there on the weekend.

Ireland scored 24 points in the first 23 minutes, and that was about the most exciting part of the game bar one or two moments of brilliance from a young backline that at times showed glimpses of real quality.

Ireland came out easily on top in the end, despite some spirited play by the Barbarians. The final score in this one, 39-14 to the Irish.
