While some of his Leicester Tigers teammates will be hoping to pull on the red of the British & Irish Lions or the white of England this summer, Martin Castrogiovanni is set to line up against them for the Barbarians.

Castro is among the first five names announced today in the Barbarians for their summer tour, which takes in games against England and the Lions.

The Leicester Tigers prop will be joined by his Italy international team-mate Sergio Parisse, Samoa scrum-half Kahn Fotuali'i, 2007 World Cup winner Jaque Fourie and France back-rower Imanol Harinordoquy.

The rest of the Barbarians squad is still to be announced.

The two-match tour kicks-off against England at Twickenham on Sunday, May 26 and ends with a clash against the British & Irish Lions in Hong Kong on Saturday, June 1.
