    Micko called up on short notice for Barbarians!

    Barbarians twitter account has announced that Mick O'Driscoll has been called up to the Barbarians squad to replace Flip van der Merwe! They play Fiji at Twickenham on Saturday (Sky Sports).

    They had already named their team so I assume he will play some part!

          Not sure what the Barbarians means any more if they're doing that. The professional era hasn't been kind to the great BaBas tradition (unlike the Lions, that commercial colossus).

          Is that a strong Fiji side?

                the Fiji side have had major problems fielding a team,they have had to call up a number of 7s players,i think its time to call it a day
                on these matches

                            well done Micko, good luck to him. I can never forget the man's striving in many of the no-glory matches where the 2nd string slogged it out, or his heart in 2008 against the All Blacks. (And that penalty against him was just plain wrong)
