Barbarians Pay Tribute To Anthony Foley Before Thomond Park Game

Barbarians Pay Tribute To Anthony Foley Before Thomond Park Game
By PJ Browne Updated

A Barbarians team featuring five Irish internationals along with Munster's Brian Scott took on Tonga at Thomond Park on Friday night. In atrocious conditions, the Barbarians came out on top 27-24.

James Cronin, Quinn Roux and Jordi Murphy along with Scott all started the game. John Muldoon and Munster legend Donncha O'Callaghan both made appearances off the bench.

Before kick-off, the Baa-Baas replicated the tribute Ireland paid to Anthony Foley just over a year ago at Soldier Field in Chicago ahead of victory against the All Blacks.

The players formed a figure of eight on the pitch, a reference to the number Foley wore throughout his Munster and Ireland career.
