An Exciting Winter of Sport

November 17, 2021

Those long, warm summer nights have been replaced with dark evenings and cold weather. But fear not, because there is an exciting, jam-packed winter of sport to look forward to with top-class events taking place both globally and closer to home to carry you through.

 

The Barbarians playing in the Killik CupThe autumn internationals

This autumn saw the highly anticipated return of the autumn internationals series. Nations from across the world have been battling it out to claim victory and win the title in what is an intense, fiery, and physical series. 

England were faced with Tonga, Australia and South Africa at their home ground, Twickenham Stadium. England claimed a dominant 69-3 win over Tonga in their first match, and went on to claim another against Australia, with the score at the final whistle 32-15.

The return of a full capacity stadium and a roaring home crowd created an immense and electric atmosphere that had been missed by everyone over the past year and a half.

 

The Killik Cup

The Killik Cup has brought together some of the world’s greatest rugby players since its inception in 2011. The Barbarian team is made up of players of all ages, nationalities and abilities who come together and leave their rivalries behind to take on some of the world’s greatest international teams. Twickenham Stadium will host the Barbarians VS Samoa on 27 November 2021. The two teams last met ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup when the Baa Baas narrowly won 27-24. We’re expecting their match to be just as intense as they go head-to-head for another battle 6 years on.
