Selection panel: Win tickets to Barbarians v New Zealand

Teamselector.jpg
The Barbarians v New Zealand is one of sport's most iconic fixtures and we’re celebrating the links between two great rugby teams in our competition to win tickets for you and four friends to go to the latest meeting of the sides at Twickenham on November 4.

The teams first met in 1954 and Barbarians fans will be hoping for a repeat of famous victories in 1973 and 2009.

Since that first game, dozens of New Zealand’s finest have pulled on the famous black and white Barbarians jersey with legends like Richie McCaw, Jonah Lomu, Carlos Spencer and Graham Mourie among them.

We’ve picked out the best in each position below. 

What we want you to do is select your team (in the order 15-9 and 1-8) and email the selections to competition@thebarbarians.co.uk by 12:00 on Monday, October 30.

Our own Barbarians selection panel will pick their team and the closest entry to it will be the winner. Our usual competition terms and conditions apply. 

All over the field there will be some tough choices to make – try choosing two from Lomu, Joe Rokocoko, Charles Piutau and Doug Howlett on the wings! So get selecting and good luck.
