Martin Corry says he is looking forward to a special day when he leads out the Barbarians in his final appearance at Twickenham on Saturday.

Leicester Tigers legend and former England captain Corry will skipper the BaaBaas against England before the squad travel to Sydney for a game against Australia on June 6 when he will bring the curtain down on an illustrious career.

His World Cup winning teammate, Josh Lewsey, will also retire at the end of the Barbarians’ tour, and Corry said: “People sometimes forget that Josh and I started our professional careers at Bristol.

“The wheel has now gone full circle as both of us will be part of the same team and a prestigious occasion when we pull on the BaaBaas shirt to play against England.

“It will be a special day and one we're both looking forward to.”

Lewsey added: "The great thing about playing for the Barbarians on Saturday is that Martin will lead the team out as captain at Twickenham, which is a fitting end for a super guy, who has had a great career.”

Corry will face Tigers teammate Lewis Moody, who has been named in the England team, and Moody says he is looking forward to the game.

He said: "I intend to make the most of the time I have playing and the time I have on the pitch, that's all you can do as a rugby player."

Tickets will be on sale from the South Stand ticket office at Twickenham on Saturday morning for Tigers fans wanting to say farewell to Corry.
