The Barbarian Rugby Club, more commonly known as the French Barbarians (French: Barbarians français), are an invitational rugby union team founded in 1979 and based in France. The team is based on the Barbarians and was founded by Jean-Claude Skrela after he played for and adored the Barbarians in the later days of his career. The French Barbarians play in Sky, Navy and Royal hooped jerseys, and as with the original Barbarians, players retain the socks from their "home" club strip. All of the players chosen for the side are either French or play for French clubs.

One of the most recent matches was against the Argentina national team (Los Pumas) in early 2007, as part of their preparation for the 2007 Rugby World Cup. For the game, held in Biarritz, the coaches were Jacques Delmas (Biarritz), Patrice Lagisquet (Biarritz) and were captained by Thomas Lièvremont. While in 2008 they beat Canada in Victoria. They played with Argentina at Vélez Sársfield in Buenos Aires on 20 June 2009 as part of the mid-year test series, and lost 32–18
