Simi Pam scores in record-breaking Barbarians win

Simi Pam touched down as the Barbarians women's team put on a dominant display to defeat a South Africa women's XV 60-5 in front of a record 29,581 fans at Twickenham.

The match kicked off at 14:30 GMT having been moved up from 17:15 GMT after the men's Barbarians match against Samoa was called off just 90 minutes before kick off following a Covid outbreak in the Barbarians camp.

Sarah Levy of the United States scored a hat-trick and England's Natasha Hunt scored twice as the Barbarians registered 10 tries in total.

Many of the players arrived at the stadium only half an hour before the revised kick-off because of the late change to what was intended to be a Barbarians double-header.

But the star-studded Barbarians started quickly, scoring six tries in an entertaining first half to lead 38-0.

England's World Cup-winning captain Katy Daley-Mclean, playing in her final match, was one of the stars of the show. The 35-year-old fly-half was named player of the match thanks to an inspired display that included one try and four conversions.

Ireland's Ciara Griffin, 27, who was also making the final appearance of her career, scored the Barbarian's last try.

Ayanda Malinga scored a great individual try late on for the Springboks to ensure they got on the scoresheet.
