Boks face Barum socks

Following the heart-warming revelation that All Black Jerry Collins recently made over 30 rugby players as happy as a fat kid in a sweetshop by turning out for Barnstaple 2nds against their Newton Abbott counterparts in Devon, it now looks as if the Barnstaple club socks will be worn by Collins at Twickenham when he turns out for the Barbarians against South Africa next month.

“I have asked the Barnstaple guys if it would be okay for me to wear their socks when I play for the Barbarians against South Africa at Twickenham. I have played for the club and it’s something I would like to do,” Collins told the Sunday Times.

It seems that, for Collins, it was the Barnstaple club that did him a favour by letting him play, rather than the other way round.

Good on you Jerry Collins - a true gent.
