England vs The Barbarians

On Sunday 27th May, we took 12 pupils to England vs The Barbarians rugby match at Twickenham Stadium. Whilst the Midlands suffered torrential rain and floods, we basked in glorious sunshine in South West London.

The Barbarians are a nomadic team of world class players form all over world, who hold on to the amateur ethos of rugby and are renowned for playing an exciting brand of rugby. This game did not disappoint.
