Rugby Union

After restoring pride to the national side by finishing as runners up in this year's Six Nations, England's rugby union team will be determined to impress once more when they face the mighty Barbarians in their annual match-up at Twickenham. The game will also provide those involved with an opportunity to lay claim to a place in Stuart Lancaster's squad for the upcoming three-Test tour of South Africa.

As expected, the 'Baa-Baas' invitation-only line-up will be as star-studded as always with coach John Kirwan handing debuts to former England captain Mike Tindall and Fijian flanker Akapusi Qera. The Gloucester pair are the latest additions to an already impressive squad, which also includes English World Cup winner Lewis Moody and Welsh record try scorer Shane Williams.
