England vs Barbarians: how to watch rugby on TV in the UK today

The non-cap contest is the last chance to earn a seat on the plane for this summer’s three-Test tour of Australia, with Jones to name his team on Monday.

Danny Care is set to play international rugby off the bench for the first time since 2018 after receiving a shocking recall from England, while also making first appearances for the likes of Northampton fullback Tommy Freeman and Harlequins hooker Jack Walker, with Will Goodrick – Clarke, Patrick Schickerling and Orlando Bailey also ready for their first caps.

England are out of key players such as Manu Tuilagi and Henry Slade due to injury as they look to sign positively for Australia after another hugely disappointing Six Nations campaign, with Saracens and Leicester players also absent after Saturday’s thrilling Premiership final , which the Tigers won 15-12.


The Barbarians are coached by Fabien Galthie and captained by Charles Ollivon, with France and Top 14 players dominating their team by invitation.

Sunday will be an emotional event for former England lock George Cross, who will face the country for which he won 45 senior caps in his last appearance as a professional rugby player.
