A star-studded Barbarians side will once agin return to London on Sunday to play against a second string England team at Twickenham.
The Barbarians side will have the likes of Rhys Webb, Charles Piutau, Malakai Fekitoa and Liam Messam to name a few, while the England team, coached by former Northampton chief Jim Mallinder, is full of potential future England players such as Marcus Smith and Alex Dombrandt.
This is the recipe for an exciting game in south west London and hopefully after Sunday’s match there will be some additions to these 20 minutes of classic tries scored by the Barbarians over the years.
Kick off is at 3.30pm and in the same fixture in 2018, Chris Ashton scored a first half hat trick for the Barbarians in a thrilling 45-63 win for the tourists.
