The Barbarians are a group of players who were chosen to form an elite team. They had no ground, clubhouse or subscription and membership was by invitation only. It was the vision and enthusiam of one man, William Percy Carpmael. Inspired by his personal playing experiences with both Blackheath and Cambridge University, his dream was to spread good will amongst all rugby football players.The dream became reality on December 27th 1890 at Friary Field, Hartlepool. A team they called the Barbarians was born.Outstanding talents have followed in their footsteps ever since.
As a result of many unbelievable performances, the Barbarians won respect worldwide and on 31 January 1948 they were invited to play the Australians at Cardiff Arms Park in the final match of the tour. The game captured the imagination of millions and drew a capacity crowd of 45,000. So successful was the fixture that it became tradition for Australia, New Zealand or South Africa - whichever was touring the UK - to tackle the Barbarians in 'The Final Challenge.' This event took place every three years until,in the professional era after 1995, games started to occurred more frequently.
As the beginning of the 21st century, the Barbarians played South Africa in 2000 and Australia in 2001 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Then, in a magical three Decembers between 2007 and 2009, the Barbarians beat South Africa and New Zealand at Twickenham and played the first rugby union match at the rebuilt Wembley Stadium, playing Australia.
