Koster the latest Baa Baa

Nick Koster is the latest South African selected to represent the Barbarians when they take on Australia in December.

As part of the Baa Baas tradition, an uncapped player is picked to join the international stars in the squad. Western Province eighthman Koster is that player and he will join up with Richie McCaw, Jerry Collins, and Schalk Burger among the loose-forwards, while other team-mates will include John Smit, Bryan Habana, Percy Montgomery, Bakkies Botha as well as Fourie du Preez.

Other international players that have been confirmed are George Gregan, Carl Hayman and Shane Williams.

The 19-year-old Koster, who only matriculated from school last year, will also be coached by the World Cup-winning pair of Jake White and Eddie Jones.

The fixture against the Wallabies will take place on 3 December at Wembley.
