Was today's game the first time that the Ba Bas did not contain even one player from the 6 nations? Strange considering it was played at Twickenham...

Outside international window so European clubs aren't going to release players

I went to Barbarians V All Blacks game last year. Very few northern hemisphere players. Entertaining game without the intensity of a top competitive competition. A bit of a money making gimic by someone at the top of the game.
