On Saturday 1st November 2014, the Barbarians will kick start the Autumn Internationals at Twickenham with an eagerly anticipated opening match against Australia.

The Wallabies have one of the most exciting backlines in world rugby and along with the Barbarians attacking ethos, both teams will look forward to showcasing their skills, guaranteeing some entertaining running rugby on the day.

The All Black legend, Sir John Kirwan, has already agreed to coach the Barbarians and the squad will be full of high profile international stars from around the globe. He commented:

“The Baa Baas have a proud history and I will be selecting a team that will respect that. We will look to play the sort of rugby against the Wallabies that encompasses that spirit and we want to win”

Ewen McKenzie, the Australian coach also remarked;

“This match against the Barbarians will be the perfect way for us to start off our 2014 Tour of the Northern Hemisphere.

Matches between the Qantas Wallabies and Barbarians are always played with an abundance of passion and flair featuring plenty of action packed running rugby. We’re certainly looking to repeat our performance when we last met in 2011 and look forward to having plenty of support from our fans in the UK.

The Tour will also feature matches against some powerhouses of world Rugby – so this match will be a great way to help us prepare for Wales, France, Ireland and England.”
