Craig Newby dots down for Barbarians

Leicester-bound back row Craig Newby scored the Barbarians' first try in their 39-14 defeat by Ireland on Tuesday evening.

But the Highlanders back row was helped off the field after being injured in his run through two tackles to the try-line just before half-time.

Leicester Tigers scrum-half Frank Murphy was used as a late replacement by Ireland coach Michael Bradley whose team ran in five tries.

The Barbarians now move on to their match against England at Twickenham on Sunday, while Ireland send a squad including scrum-half Murphy to the Barclays Churchill Cup and a senior squad featuring Tigers clubmate Geordan Murphy to Australia and New Zealand.
