"The crowd was unbelievable. It felt like a
Boxing Day Test. Standing in that tunnel, I've never heard a roar like it. Standing next to the Japanese as we waited to walk out was pretty special. I was giving a few 'yahoos'. The boys gave me a bit about that. I was pumped. I wasn't going to hold it in."
Barnes was originally selected as a replacement for Australia's next game, against nrut|Wales at the
Millennium Stadium, but when Stephen Larkhaminjured his knee, Barnes was told on the morning of the game that he would be the starting fly-half.
