The Barbarians is time honoured tradition and one that every player of any age or stage in their career hopes to be a part of. From World Cup Winners to British and Irish Lions' legends, running out for Barbarians is on the to do list for every single player in the world of rugby and only a few are fortunate enough to receive the call up and wear the black and white hoops.
What are we? English? Welsh? British? Are we bothered? Most of the time our "identity", national, religious or whatever, probably isn't at the top of our list of concerns. But sometimes circumstances come along which make us less secure in ourselves, less able to take our place in the world quite so much for granted.
