14-man barbarians hammer England

Despite sending Will Skelton in the first half, the Barbarians won 52-21 over England.

Even after being reduced to 14 men when Wallaby’s Locke Skelton was dismissed for a dangerously high tackle, the famed club was dominant against Eddie Jones’ men and ran to score more than half a century in eight tries. Coached by Fabian Galthy and Shawn Edwards, it was a barbaric performance played like a Test match, with some of the latter’s scores resembling classic bass-bass values.

Speaking on Amazon Prime’s full-time commentary, former England supporter David Flatman said the Barbarian had “made fun of England” at Twickenham.

French winger Damien Penaud made two of the eight attempts and former England lock-in George Kruis scored a hat-trick of conversions in his final professional appearance, which included a back-heel attempt.

England resorted to racial abuse hours after the final

Leicester Tigers and England prop Alice Genge was subjected to racial abuse just hours after lifting the Gallagher Premiership trophy.

In his final game for the club before moving to the Bristol Bears, Tigers captain Genge helped the club run to a 15–12 success over the Saracens. Later, he shared a message thanking fans for their support shortly after 2am on Sunday morning as the Tigers celebrated the glory of their Twickenham Stadium.

“To this group for winning something so special on the moon and sharing the moments with the family,” Geng wrote on Twitter. “Hope you all enjoyed the ride, thank you to Leicester Tigers for all you have given to me and my family. Gengie out X’.

However, minutes later he shared a direct message correspondence from a Twitter user congratulating him saying “can’t wait for the shirt signed in the post”. This was followed by another message from the same account in which Genge was racially abused.

Genge edited the screengrab to remove all elements that could identify the user. Instead, he opted to use his platform to highlight the attack and send a message to social media companies and lawmakers.

He wrote: “On another note, think this is still a big problem even from a legal account, important to highlight. Not for headhunt here so black out, common occurrence and social/law must come down “

Former Springbok issued Welsh warning

Former South African Locke Kobus Wiese has warned the Springboks will show Meczyki no mercy this summer.

The 58-year-old, who won 18 caps, believes Wayne Pivac’s men could last a few weeks longer when they face the world champions in their own backyard in a three-Test series in July.

“It’s always hard to come here and without at least being arrogant, there are a number of reasons why these matches will be particularly difficult,” Wiese told the Rugby Paper.

“They mark the start of the Springboks’ defense of the World Cup in France next year. With so many outstanding youngsters coming, the competition for places is huge. [Evan] Roos, in particular, is a huge talent.

“Everyone would like to give their best with the word ‘go’. There will be no lull at any stage during the three matches. There will be no bar for the simple reason that it is not in the nature of the beast.

“That’s why it’s going to be an uphill battle for the Welsh. They will be up against a team with a lot of young blood at their disposal. Meczyki will have to do their best. Most important, they will have the box-pack. It will not be easy to match the physicality.If they do well in the preliminary test, it will give them a huge psychological boost.

“If they don’t, it can be bad for them. Test rugby starts and ends in front. I’ve never seen a team win a Test match when they’ve been beaten in a set-piece.

“I don’t want to speak insultingly because Meczyki means a lot to me but that doesn’t take away from the reality that three Tests on three consecutive Saturdays would be a very tall order.”

England sweating over star’s fitness

England suffered a setback for their non-cap international against the Barbarians after Alex Dombrandt was ruled out of the Twickenham clash due to a knee problem.

Dombrandt suffered an injury in training on Friday and was replaced at number eight by Callum Chick. This put a question mark on Harlequin’s back-line involvement in the tour of Australia the following month, with Eddie Jones naming his touring squad on Monday morning.

During his defeat to the barbarians, he could be seen wearing a full knee brace.

Cardiff City hires former Bath and Munster man

Cardiff City have appointed former Bath and Munster man Patrick Wilson as their new head of physical performance.

Wilson joins the Bluebirds at his first job in football when he switches from Bath rugby. Prior to moving to RE, he spent eight years with European giant Munster, holding several roles including head of athletic performance and senior strength and conditioning coach.

He switched to Bath in 2019, previously as head of strength and conditioning, before being appointed as head of athletic performance a year later. The Irishman, who hails from Fermoy, County Cork, is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Central Lancashire, which is centered around decision-making under uncertainty in a high-performance environment.
