From the match programme:-
"WELCOME TO THE PARADE"
"When Percy Carpmael and T.C. Graham, the respective captains of the first ever game between tonight's opponents in 1891, led their teams out on to Rodney Parade, it is doubtful if they realised the great tradition they were laying for rugby football in the future. The Barbarians are the most revered rugby touring club in the history of rugby football and it was Percy Carpmael, a man of vision, who saw the Barbarians as an invitation touring rugby club, with a resolute commitment to playing attacking rugby in an atmosphere of good comradeship and fun. History has proved his vision correct, and the enjoyment the Barbarians have given to players and spectators alike during their illustrious history is impossible to record in words. Their motto, 'Rugby is a game for gentlemen in all classes but for no bad sportsmen in any class' should be remembered by all players in the current game."
"This evening the current Barbarian Committee, made up of Herbert Waddell (only the fifth President in the Club's history), Micky Steele-Bodger the Vice-President, Geoffrey Windsor-Lewis the Hon. Secretary, and Gordon 'Fergie' Ferguson the Asst. Hon. Secretary, together with eight other Committee members, have selected a star studded side in an attempt to win here at The Parade for the first time since the annual fixture was moved from the traditional Easter Tuesday date. The selected team includes 13 internationals and the two uncapped players, Arthur Emyr of Swansea, who scored a hat trick of tries versus the Black and Ambers only 10 days ago, and Ieuan Evans of Llanelli, who scored two tries here last season before tragically damaging his shoulder and being forced to miss the rest of the season, could soon join their illustrious team mates. There is a doubt over the selected half backs - Jonathan Davies is still being troubled by a hamstring while Richard Harding is on the 'subs' bench for England at Twickeneham on Saturday. Everyone here at Rodney Parade hopes they both play and that the game produces rugby football of the highest quality and a high scoring game like those of recent times."
"Welcome, Barbarians. The Black and Amber contribution to your history is listed separately in this programme - long may this continue and also your visits to Rodney Parade."
