Born into a rugby-loving family, Stephen has always been passionate about the game. He played for the University of Queensland before a 2-year stint playing in New Zealand. In 2004, Stephen and his friends founded Indonesian Rugby. He still remains a loyal servant of Indonesian Rugby today and was honoured as a life member of the Union in 2013. Stephen is Head of International Relations of Persatuan Rugby Union Indonesia and has been NOW! Jakarta’s rugby contributor since 2008.
Recently, NOW! Jakarta contributor Stephen Barber had the opportunity to attend the Wallabies versus Puma test in Perth, Western Australia with my great friend and fellow Co-Founder of Indonesian Rugby, Andrew ‘Darth’ Vater.
