Jake White will have the help of seven of his World Cup Springboks when his Barbarian side face the Wallabies in the Olympic Centenary match at Wembley Stadium on December 3.
Rugby 365 reports that according to OFM Sport’s official site, Boks such as Percy Montgomery, Jean de Villiers, Bryan Habana, Fourie du Preez, Schalk Burger, Bakkies Botha and John Smit have already confirmed their participation.
All Blacks Richie McCaw, Jerry Collins and Joe Rokocoko will also be in Baa-Baas action.
The Olympic Centenury match marks the first time White will coach a side after last years’ World Cup success with the Springboks, who ironically lost 5-22 to the Baa-Baas at Twickenham last December.
This latest high-profile match for the Barbarians – Rugby Union’s most prestigious invitational side – celebrates 100 years since the Olympic Games were first staged in London.
This fixture will also be the first Union match to be played at the new Wembley stadium, which will stage a half-time parade featuring Great Britain’s medal winners from last month’s Beijing Olympic Games.Tweet
