MacGinty Garners Barbarians Selection

We'd smile too if we earned a Barbarians selection.
AJ MacGinty can add a new honor to his list after being selected for the Barbarians match against England later this month. For those that have followed MacGinty over the last few seasons the selection shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. He was instrumental in Connacht's magical season a few years back and then has been a staple for Sale since his arrival. Only injury has really kept him from making an impact. With a gap in the schedule between the end of Sale's season and the Eagles summer tour it was a perfect opportunity to earn the honor.

He'll join a growing list of players that have suited up for the Eagles and the Barbarians. Todd Clever, Titi Lamositele, Dan Lyle, Samu Manoa, Taku Ngwenya, Paul Emerick, Mike Hercus, Mike MacDonald, Mike Petri, and others have played for the team. However, only a few select players have played in high profile fixtures like the one against England.
