The New Zealand Barbarians, nicknamed the "Baa-Baas", are an invitational rugby union team. They have been a part of New Zealand rugby since the team was founded in 1937 by two ex-All Blacks, Ronald Bush and Hubert McLean, who captained their first game (against Auckland) in 1938.[1]

The club is based in New Zealand, at Eden Park in Auckland. The idea came from the concept of the Barbarian F.C..

Playing kit and symbol

The New Zealand Barbarians wear scarlet red jerseys with white shorts and socks. The symbol of the New Zealand Barbarians is a white leaping lamb covered in blood.
