This will be the first time that the 37-year-old will wear the black and white of the Baa Baa’s after years of near misses, as he gets to walk out in front of thousands of fans at Twickenham once again.

“I’m absolutely over the moon to be chosen to represent the Barbarians this summer,” Care said.

“It’s nearly happened a few times over the last few years, but now the stars have aligned and I cannot wait to finally wear that famous black and white shirt,” he said.

“To do it at Twickenham as well is going to be so, so special for me.”

Building on what is expected to elicit a festival style atmosphere at the home of English rugby, the recent internationally-retired scrum half added:

“The chance to meet, bond, train with and then play alongside a group of players who I have admired and played against before in my career is going to be a unique experience,

“I’ll also get the opportunity to run out alongside some old friends as well, which will be really cool.

“I’ve always watched the Baa-Baas with such affection because of their style and how the team approaches the game.

“I feel like the Barbarians and myself could be a match made in heaven, so I really can’t wait to throw my own bit of flair into an already incredible team.”
