This year’s Killik Cup promised a first with both the women’s and men’s Barbarians playing on the same day.
First up, the men’s team were to play Samoa with the women playing South Africa later in the day.
Sadly, Covid has a habit of breaking promises and with both men’s teams in the changing rooms, making their final preparations for the game, news came through that positive test results had been returned and the men’s game had been cancelled.
With just 90 minutes warning, the women’s teams were notified that they would now be playing early.
Undeterred, our team of T-shirt cannons took to the field to raise spirits after the disappointment of the cancellation. With T-shirts flying high into the stands, it became clear the audience was ready to cheer on the women’s teams just as enthusiastically.
Joining us for the day in firing the cannons was one of the sponsors. Keen to get involved, we trained him on the day and under the close eye of our crew, 140 T-shirts were fired out to eager fans.
To add to the thrill, two lucky spectators caught autographed team jerseys that had been signed by the whole men’s team!
