Twickenham - Saturday 21st November 2015
KO: 15:05 HT: 12-28 Att: 38,101

THE Barbarians summoned up the spirit of 1890 to help celebrate their 125th anniversary at Twickenham. Barbarians players from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa posed for images this week that echo an 1890s portrait of the famous invitation club's founder William Percy Carpmael.

Wallabies captain Moore was the star of the show with a Victorian moustache that puts him into the period perfectly.

BEFORE the historic match kicked off, a spectacular 125th Anniversary Lunch in Twickenham's prestigious Spirit of Rugby suite was held where more Barbarians legends than one could possibly count were in attendance. Sir Gareth Edwards Derek Quinnell JPR WilliamsIn the presence of the Presidents of all four home Rugby Unions and the President of Rugby Americas, World Rugby Executive Committee member and former Pumas captain, Agustin Pichot, stories were regaled by the likes of Derek Quinnell, JPR Williams, Gavin Hastings, Roger Uttley and the illustrious Sir Gareth Edwards, chaperoned in marvellous fashion by the President of Barbarians FC, the inimitable Mickey Steele-Bodger who still boasts both charm and wit at the grand old age of 90!

Gavin Hastings Roger Uttley Agustin PichotThe Barbarians and Argentina served up a fitting celebration of the famous invitation club’s 125th anniversary by sharing 12 tries at Twickenham, and the guests enjoyed 80 minutes of entertainment as both sides impressed in attack with World Cup semi finalists Argentina winning with a try-count of 7-5.

Barbarians 125th Anniversary match v ArgentinaWing Santiago Cordero - a Barbarian two years ago - touched down twice for the Pumas with Facundo Isa, Ramiro Moyano, Martin Landajo, Jeronimo de la Fuente and Nicolas Sanchez scoring their tries. Sanchez (6) and Emiliano Bofelli were immaculate from the kicking tee.

Barbarians 125th Anniversary match v ArgentinaMichael Cheika’s Barbarians opened the scoring through Tevita Kuridrani with Waisake Naholo, Joe Tomane, Nemani Nadolo and captain Victor Matfield scoring. Nadolo (2) and Sopoaga kicked the conversions.

Barbarians 125th Anniversary match v Argentina Victor Matfield Bakkies BothaThe final extra point attempt came from an unlikely source; Springbok giant Bakkies Botha was unsuccessful in his final act as a player after a rich career that saw him win 85 caps, a World Cup, Currie Cups, Super Rugby titles, the European Cup and the French Top 14.

The plan was for him to swap places with long-time partner but Victor Matfield persuaded his coach to let him stay on the field to pack down with his old mate one last time.

The Barbarians had brought together a squad of Southern Hemisphere stars including half-a-dozen World Cup finalists and a pack including South African heavyweights Matfield, Botha and young Lood de Jager.

Kuridrani opened the scoring after Sopoaga’s neat chip but the Pumas hit back with three scores of their own. Isa powered over from close range before Cordero scored his first, then laid on the third try for Moyano after the attacking Barbarians lost the ball.

Michael Cheika Mauro Bergamasco BaaBaas PumasNaholo fielded Sopoaga’s cross kick and stepped past onrushing defenders to narrow the gap but the Barbarians lost the ball just before the break and saw Cordero grab his second.

They stretched the lead again when Landajo and de la Fuente finished more attacks from deep but Tomane responded with a long break down the left and Fijian wing Nadolo closed the gap.

Sanchez eased any prospects of a late comeback by running back a loose offload but the Barbarians saved the best to last with a sustained attack that ended with Matfield’s try and Botha’s final act.
