On a beautiful sunny Sunday 6th January, at an equally beautiful setting - Harrow School - the Exiles got the new year off to the best possible start with an emphatic win.
The contest was as far from being as one-sided as the scoreline suggests, the main differences being the quality of the Exiles off-loading and defence, compared with the number of unforced errors the Barbarians made.
It would be invidious to pick out individuals after a team performance like this, but is is pleasing to record the fact that three of the tries came from newcomers to the Exiles ranks - Phil Leonard (Stonyhurst) and Robbie Winchle (St. Peter's Gloucester).
