Barbarians v Merlins

In an exhibition contest of developmental squads, Glendale Merlins and Denver Barbarians saw action today on the StoveTop at Infinity under near perfect weather conditions. Glendale looked sharply keen at breakdown and were utterly devastating when ball was slung along their backline. Denver for its part showed absolute individual brilliance at times, though the Men in Green were undone on occasion by a reluctance to tackle and Merlins held a 31-10 advantage at the midpoint.

Barbarians dotted a brace to make things interesting early in the second stanza for tallies of 31 and 20, but Merls grounded the final pair of trys for a scoreline of 42-20 as a record on this day.
