The latest Barbarians fixture was significant in many ways, none more so than it was a farewell for some of the world’s most adored players. RugbyPass went behind the scenes with the sports most iconic invitation-only club, as they prepared for a clash with Wales.

This stunning documentary gives us emotional insight into the traditions of the club, and what it means for the world’s best players to represent the Baa Baas.

Coach Warren Gatland went up against his side after 12 years at the helm, and it was also an emotional final match in the treasured professional rugby careers of Ireland’s Rory Best and South Africa’s Schalk Brits, as they both retired after the final whistle sounded at the end of a memorable week, beautifully captured by RugbyPass.

“For me, it is the memories you make off the pitch. Of course, it is very important that you put in a great performance on weekends but the beauty of Barbarians is the people,” said recent Springboks World Cup winner Brits.

“The longer I played the game, the less important rugby became but the more important the people became. And if you cherish those moments, even now sitting here at 38, you forget the games but you do remember the people. Every guy who has worn this (Barbarians) shirt, thank you for the memories which will last forever with me.”

Enjoy Inside the Barbarians.
