The Barbarians return to Twickenham to face Fiji in November
In the only Autumn International of 2019 to be played at Twickenham, the Barbarians will contest Fiji for the Killik Cup just two weeks after the 2019 Rugby World Cup final, presenting UK fans in the grip of rugby fever with a golden opportunity to experience top-class international action at the home of English Rugby.
The Barbarians, affectionately known as the world’s most famous rugby club, are renowned for their attacking flair and entertaining style and will meet a Fiji Airways Flying Fijian team also synonymous with fast-paced, thrilling rugby.
Across their 129-year history, the Barbarians shirt has been worn by more than 5,000 players from over 30 different nations, including sporting legends such as Jonah Lomu, Brian O’Driscoll, Bryan Habana and England’s 2003 Rugby World Cup winning captain, Martin Johnson.
Fans can expect to see a number of this year’s Rugby World Cup stars pulling on the famous black and white shirt to play a Fiji team containing some of the most skilled players in the game.
The last time the two teams met at Twickenham, in November 2013, more than 68,000 fans were treated to a mouth-watering spectacle of running rugby, with the Barbarians stealing the show in an electric 43-19 win.
This year’s fixture is not to be missed, with a bumper crowd expected to fill Twickenham again for their first taste of post-Rugby World Cup action.
