On Saturday May 16th, The Boston Barbarians Rugby Team will be hosting The British and Irish Police Rugby Team for an exhibition match at The Irish Cultural Center, Canton, MA. The Boston Barbarians are a regional select-side made up of the best players on Boston’s top rugby clubs.
The British & Irish Police have a strong tradition of playing Rugby for over 75 years. With a strong select representation from across the forces many have gone onto play International Rugby for their home national teams. They play around the world and are known for their spirit, camaraderie and charity. This their first visit to Boston and they will go onto New York following their time here.
Traditional post match festivities will be sponsored and continue on at the Cultural Center Clubhouse, following the match. Further event details and information on players can be found on Facebook at The Boston Barbarians Rugby Team page. The event has been sanctioned by USA Rugby and the New England Rugby Union.
