The Barbarians Football Club is an invitation-only touring rugby union team that is based in Britain. While the club is based in Britain, it is not a requirement that one must be British or Irish to become a member. The qualifications considered when choosing members is that the man must have certain behaviour on and off the rugby field and must play rugby at a high skill level. For example, the team’s motto was given to them by previous Bishop of Bloemfontein and Barbarian member Walter Julius Carey and states, “Rugby Football is a game for gentlemen in all classes, but for no bad sportsman of any class.”
The idea of the Barbarians Rugby Union team was inspired by the idea of a touring club brought from various sources. The founder, William Percy Carpmael, played for Cambridge University’s rugby union team and was set on forming a touring rugby union team that would consist of players collected and invited from all over. The Barbarians team was agreed upon in the late nineteenth century and played its first match in the same year against the Hartlepool Rovers, and won nine to four. This marked the beginning of what would become rugby history, as the barbarians rugby union club was inducted into the IRB Hall of Fame not too long ago to honour their influence on the rugby union sport.
