Breaking news………We are delighted to announce that The Belgium Barbarians sevens side will be attending to defend their 2011 Championship status! This is a selection of players from Belgium, but open also to other nationalities and while you may not get to, or even want to, play them, you will certainly enjoy seeing them perform. There are only Seven of them on the field at any given time although is sometimes feels like more! However, someone will get them eventually so why not make it your team this year?
On the Belgium Barbarians prior three visits to Montreal, John Jones was their prime contact and sponsor and in recognition of John’s efforts to help establish Seven-a-Side Rugby in Quebec the Barbarians wanted to come back again and show support for the 7’s Tournament in memory of John. We are glad to welcome them back to Quebec! Click here to read latest news on the Belgium Barbarians.
