    Kiwis make up half Barbarian side

    Thirteen New Zealanders, past or present All Blacks, have been named in the 26-man Barbarians squad for matches against NZ and Tonga.


    Two more New Zealanders have been added to the Barbarians squad to meet the All Blacks this weekend, meaning Kiwis now make up half the 26-strong invitation side.

    Former All Blacks Ben Franks and Steven Luatua were named in Robbie Deans' squad for Saturday's match at Twickenham, bringing the number of their countrymen to 13.

    South Africans, Australians and Italy's Simone Favaro make up the balance of the side, which also plays Tonga in Limerick a week after the All Blacks.

    Five of the Kiwi players - Atu Moli, Dominic Bird, Dillon Hunt, Mitchell Drummond and Richie Mo'unga - will link up with the All Blacks in time for their midweek fixture against a French XV in Lyon on November 14.

    BARBARIANS SQUAD:

    Forwards: Ruan Ackermann (Gloucester), Dominic Bird (Chiefs & NZ), Willie Britz (Sunwolves), Sam Carter (Brumbies & Australia), Simone Favaro (Fiamme Oro), Ben Franks (London Irish & NZ), Dillon Hunt (Highlanders), Steven Luatua (Bristol & NZ), Atu Moli (Chiefs), Kwagga Smith (Lions), Ruan Smith (Toyota Verblitz), Adriaan Strauss (Bulls & South Africa), Akker van der Merwe (Sharks), Jacques van Rooyen (Lions), Luke Whitelock (Highlanders & NZ)

    Backs: Vince Aso (Hurricanes), George Bridge (Crusaders), Richard Buckman (Highlanders), Mitchell Drummond (Crusaders), Robert du Preez (Stormers), Andy Ellis (Kobelco Steelers & NZ), Richie Mo'unga (Crusaders), Taqele Naiyaravoro (Waratahs & Australia), Julian Savea (Hurricanes & NZ), Nic Stirzaker (Rebels), Harold Vorster (Lions).
