Fly half Davies to represent the Barbarians

10th November 2014

Cardiff Blues fly half Gareth Davies will pull on the famous black and white hooped shirt of the Barbarians in this Tuesday's eagerly-anticipated Remembrance Day match against the combined might of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force rugby teams at The Rec.

Wales Sevens ace Davies is one of six international 7s players named by the Barbarians who will be looking to live up to their traditions of free-flowing rugby.

The Baa Baas' squad, which blends youth and experience, also includes Jonathan Edwards and James Goode from Cardiff RFC.

This will be the first year that the Barbarians sport the poppy emblem on their shirts, in commemoration of the outbreak of the Great War 100 years ago.

Kick-off at The Rec is at 7.30pm and tickets - priced £15 covered, £10 open and £5 for under-18s - are available from or by calling 0844 448 1865.
