Barbarians run riot in entertaining midweek clash against Leicester Tigers

Barbarians run riot in entertaining midweek clash against Leicester Tigers

While the dust was still settling the thrilling Barbarians vs Wallabies game, the famous black and white hoops were at it again last night, against Leicester Tigers. The match wasn’t televised, but the Tigers have put this great package together.

There was plenty of frustration yesterday as realisation struck that this mouth-watering fixture, featuring some serious world rugby talent, wasn’t going to be aired by any TV stations, making it almost impossible for those unable to attend to know exactly what went on.

Up stepped Leicester Tigers though, and despite them actually losing the entertaining match 59-26, they put together highlights from their own, solo-manned camera, used for internal analysis.

As you’ll see why when watching, we’re all extremely grateful as there were not only some excellent tries, but a few hilarious moments, including an outrageously comical conversion attempt (Francis Saili), and one of the most perplexing tap penalty moves you’re likely to see.

It was a midweek fixture and could easily have been overlooked, but with players such as Nick Cummins, Tevita Li, Fumiaki Tanaka, Juan de Jongh and Mahonri Schwalger playing (to name a few), it was deeply frustrating to not be able to watch the entire match live on TV.

It also happened to be a farewell match for Sharks stalwart Jacques Botes, who as some of you will know, has been well above average his entire career, and perhaps could have got a Test cap if it weren’t for the kind of competition that exists amongst lose forwards in South Africa.

He can be seen taking two attempts at goal in the video, the first hopeless, and the second to end the match after De Jongh, who was already on a hat-trick after having scored twice before, unselfishly tossed him the ball in the in goal area for a try of his own.

The game ended with the BaaBaas, who had 17 international players from eight different countries, having scored nine tries to the four of the Tigers. De Jongh scored twice while Thomas du Toit, Francis Saili, Heinrich Brussow, Tom English, Michael Rhodes, Tevita Li and Botes also scored.

Thanks again to Leicester Tigers for putting this together for the fans
