The Barbarian Football Club was founded in 1890 by Percy "Tottie" Carpmael and became one of the most famous rugby clubs in the world.
A unique club, with a unique ethos, the Baa-Baas have no clubhouse, no home ground and membership is by invitation only.
According to their official website:
"The only criteria a player must fulfil to receive an invitation from The Barbarians are: that the player's rugby is of a good standard and that they behave themselves on and off the field. There is no discrimination on the basis of a player's race, colour or creed and since 1890, players from over 25 different countries have worn the famous black and white hoop jersey. Once invited a player becomes a life member of the club."
