Tomkins Scores for BaaBaas

Tomkins Scores for BaaBaas

Sam Tomkins scored the Barbarians only try in a 60-11 defeat at Twickenham on Saturday.

The Wigan Full Back, who had been invited to play in the exhibition match, was selected to play on the wing and showed glimpses of what makes him Rugby Leagues most exciting player despite having very little ball in open play.

The Tri-Nations champions, though, were a class apart and cruelly exploited the lack of cohesion in the Baa-Baas ranks

Digby Ioane, Lachie Turner and James Horwill all scored twice, while Rob Horne and Radike Samo also touched down for the Wallabies and James O'Connor kicked 20 points on his first start at fly-half.

The Barbarians' defence was embarrasing and they conceded 42 second-half points, but they did give the 51,212 crowd a late cheer with Sam's consolation try on the last play of the game.
