Tomkins Reflects on BaaBaas

Sam Tomkins scored the only try for the Barbarians on Saturday and admits it was an alien experience for him to play Rugby Union.

Tomkins, whose brother Joel has switched codes to sign for Saracens, told the BBC: "When I came in on Tuesday I was so raw I didn't even know what the numbers for each position were.

"The boys were saying 'we'll play this off the 12 or the 10' and I didn't even know who those blokes were so that was a bit of a challenge.

"Where I am from people don't know what rugby union is; I am glad I have had the chance to play but I am still a Rugby League player."
