Barbarians grab win whilst vets venture out

Facing touring side Portsmouth Rugby Club, the GRC Barbarians who are formed from a selection of players from across the locally based U-mee Rugby Championship league clubs was to walk away with a comforatble 64-5 victory.
Commenting after the match Team Manager, Nick Ramagge said “It was another great opportunity for players from the four Gibraltar based clubs to come together as one unit, a chance for some of the fringe players to test themselves in pressurised situations and hopefully vie for a place in the national squad!”
Also in action that same weekend were the Gibraltar Rugby Veterans which travelled to England for the first time. Hosted by a South West London club Richmond the vets faced a closely contested battle where the hosts were to walk away with a seven point in difference victory.
