Expect some fireworks this Saturday at Twickenham for the Killik Cup when the Barbarians take on the Double World Champions New Zealand - as the Baa-Baas attempt to emulate their famous wins of 1973 and 2009 when one of rugby’s most famous rivalries is renewed.
The Barbarian coaches, Robbie Deans, Will Greenwood and Scott Robertson have selected the most destructive winger in World Rugby who will certainly be central to their game plan of trying to dismantle the All Blacks defence this weekend.
All Black try scoring sensation Julian Savea, aka “The Bus” (46 tries from 54 appearances), weighs in at 6ft 4” and just under 17 stone – and the World Cup winner has a great chance to make the New Zealand selectors regret leaving him out.
The 26 strong Barbarian squad also includes Premiership / UK based players and former Barbarians, Ben Franks (London Irish), Steven Luatua (Bristol) and Gloucester’s Ruan Ackermann.
Other notable Internationals include former Springbok captain and hooker Adriaan Strauss (66 caps), All Black scrum half Andy Ellis (28 Caps) and Wallabies Taqele Naiyaravoro and Sam Carter.

With some of the world’s best talents on display, it promises to be an explosive action packed afternoon with entertaining running rugby guaranteed.
Tickets are still available from £55 for Adults and £35 for Juniors. Don't miss out – Book Now.
