Doncaster Knights Captain and Backs Coach Justin Bishop had some fantastic news this week, a second chance to play for the Barbarians. Known for their exciting and almost Exhibition quality Rugby, Justin is looking forward to playing 4 years after getting his first “Call Up”.

“I got a chance 4 years ago, but broke my fibula just before the game. It’s always said you never get another chance if you miss your Barbarians game so I feel truly honoured” Justin told us.

Tuesday 18th of March, Bishop will be lining up as a Barbarian at Bedford against a select XV wearing his knights Socks. “A tradition of playing for the Barbarians is wearing you club socks, so this will be the second time the Knights socks have been worn. Tom Davies played for the Barbarians last year”.

Another interesting tradition of the Barbarians is Rugby with no Shirt numbers. “It’s because they play a brand of Rugby that involves a lot of throwing the ball around, a lot of interchanging” Justin explained.

Justin grew up watching real legends like David Campese, JRP Williams and David Duckham playing for the Barbarians, and ranks it as an honour that comes close to his 25 International Caps for Ireland between 1998 and 2004. To be part of an exclusive club that Zinzan Brooke and Jonah Lomu are members of is an absolute privilege.
