The barbarians was ALWAYS about different people from different countries and leagues coming together for the love of the game and playing rugby at it's core beliefs of entertainment and expansive rugby.

Today out of the 23 selected, 22 play in the TOP14. The only player not plying their trade in France is George Kruis who is playing his final rugby game after retiring.

This isn't England vs Barbarians, It's England vs top 14

It’s not as if every barbarians game is the same.

Shaun Edwards again proving that he can mould a team into a decent defensive unit with very little preparation mostly which consists of days on the sauce. What a horrendous decision it was to allow him to leave the Welsh set up & judging by England's total lack of defensive ability yesterday you have to wonder why he was never considered by England. 

England, Wales & Scotland heading for also rans in France next year I am afraid. Borthwick & Sinfield should be approached by the RFU ASAP, but, of course, that would take some common sense from the blazers.
Squidge Rugby recently made a video predicting that England will win the world cup. He made some convincing points, enough to convince me that it would be a mistake for England to get rid of Eddie Jones. That said I can’t see them winning the world cup in a million years. If they do someone should buy Squidge a pint as it would be one hell of a prediction!

This isn't England vs Barbarians, It's England vs top 14

Wasn’t the most famous barbarians game versus the all blacks in Cardiff involving a barbarians team that was made up of the British lions? With that in mind, what’s the difference?

That Irish tour is going to be fascinating.

The only series I’d love to see more right now is France v South Africa.

no chance they give too many points and there are too many good sides out there

i suspect that many will have enjoyed seeing even a shadow England team getting a beating, so whatever the merits of your argument, this probably wasn't the weekend to air it!
