Hansen looks to Boks

Steve Hansen has picked nine Springboks for the Barbarians match against Fiji at Twickenham.

All Blacks coach Hansen, in charge of the Baabaas for the first time, has restricted his selections to Springboks, All Blacks and Argentineans, and the pack invites look too strong for Fiji.

Veteran Stormers and Springbok loose-forward Schalk Burger is among the Springboks, as is current captain Jean de Villiers.

Barbarians squad – Willie le Roux (South Africa), Santiago Cordero (Argentina), Charles Piutau (New Zealand), Frank Halai (New Zealand), Jean de Villiers (South Africa), Gavin Williams (Samoa), Patrick Lambie (South Africa), Tom Taylor (New Zealand), TJ Perenara (Hurricanes), Martin Landajo (Argentina), Keven Mealamu (New Zealand), Bismarck du Plessis (South Africa), Tendai Mtawarira (South Africa), Guillermo Roan (Argentina), Coenie Oosthuizen (South Africa), Matias Diaz (Argentina), Eben Etzebeth (South Africa), Dominic Bird (New Zealand), Manuel Carizza (Argentina), Steven Luatua (New Zealand), Luke Whitelock (New Zealand), Schalk Burger (South Africa), Duane Vermeulen (South Africa)
Coach – Steve Hansen
Assistant coach – Mark Bakewell
