Oz Barbarians to play England. ENGLAND SIDE NOW NAMED!

The Australian selectors have named the Australian Barbarians team (basically Aussie A) to take on the English touring side this Tuesday over in Perth. The side features a smattering of Wallabies who played in the first test v Fiji, as well as other former test players and many international rookies. The team is highlighted by a strong local flavour with five Force players in the starting team.

The game will be live streamed on
