The Barbarians have assembled a strong squad for the autumn, including the historic fixture against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road on Tuesday, November 4 (7.30pm).

Uncapped prop Angus Ta’avao, who has made his breakthrough with the Blues, is also selected alongside countrymen Frank Halai, Tim Nanai-Williams, Francis Saili and World Cup winner Adam Thomson.
Scotland lock Alastair Kellock has also been called up, alongside South African scrum-half and Springboks internationals centre Juan de Jongh and fly-half Marnitz Boschoff. 
Barbarians coach Sir John Kirwan also includes internationals Matt Stevens (England & Lions), Heinrich Brussow and Coenie Oosthuizen (South Africa), Mahonri Schwalger (Samoa), Fumiaki Tanaka (Japan) and Australia wing Nick Cummins in his squad for the trip.
