Sheepish Baa-Baas

Sorry about the pun, I couldn't resist!

Finally, England win something - and quite convincingly - beating the Barbarians 41-12 at Twickenham today. We put out quite a young squad, most of the senior players being rested for the summer ahead of the long haul to the World Cup next year. Even though the Baa-Baas are a scratch side, they still boast some pretty formidable talent in their ranks, so its good to see England getting some good passages of play together and crossing the whitewash!

I didn't attend this time, but here's picture from the England vs Barbarians game of May 2004. Brian O'Driscoll has the ball, closely followed by a trundling Jason Leonard. The Baa-Baas stuffed us 32-12 on that occasion!
