The Twickenham Stoop, home of NEC Harlequins, is set to host an Army versus Barbarians fixture in celebration of the Army Rugby Union Centenary Season (1906 to 2006) on <strong>Wednesday 4th April 2007, kick-off 7.45pm</strong>.
The Army Rugby Union came into being on 31st December 1906. Since its founding it has successfully fostered and developed the playing of rugby within the army to such an extent that, a hundred years on, rugby is now considered to be one of the army's premier sports.
The Army Rugby Union intends to celebrate its successes in this centenary season by arranging a variety of events including dinners, rugby festivals, tours and matches - the first being the game against the Barbarians at the Stoop.
Players from both teams are subject to confirmation but four senior Quins players are available for the Barbarians.
The match will be played under the floodlights at the Stoop and tickets are available in the Lexus, East and North stands to view the game.
