Two more nationalities will turn out for Barbarians Women as Ireland star Sene Naoupu and Japanese duo Saki Minami and Seina Saito are named to the squad.

The trio join Black Ferns Charmaine McMenamin, Eloise Blackwell and Ruahei Demant as more names are added to the all-star squad set to take on Wales at the Principality Stadium on Saturday 30 November.

Front row Saito, Japan’s most capped player, starred in the recent clash against Italy Women at Stadio Tommaso Fattori, scoring a late try converted by Ai Hirayama to hold the Azzurre to a 17-17 draw. She joins compatriot and fellow front row Minami in the Barbarians squad. Minami currently captains Japanese side Yokogawa Musashino Artemi-Stars and has 10 caps for her country.

Joining them is Ireland 7s and 15s star Naoupu. The centre has represented in both forms of the game since 2015, playing for Ireland in both the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup and 2015 Six Nations – during which Ireland won the Championship. With 34 caps to her name, Naoupu will be one of the Barbarians’ most-capped players.

The squad, led by Head Coach Jo Yapp, will come together in Cardiff on Monday 25 November for a five-day camp ahead of their match against the national side. The historic match against Wales is a first for the Barbarians women’s side, and is only the second-ever double header after the men’s and women’s teams faced England in June.
