England lock horns with the mighty Barbarians today – a nice warm-up for the start of 2022 rugby season. Twickenham will be bouncing with 20,000 fans when rugby's answer to the Harlem Globetrotters run out, so it's going to be a special match. UK fans can watch England vs Barbarians this afternoon on Amazon Prime Video with a 30-day free trial. Make sure you know how to watch an England vs Barbarians live stream, online and on TV, from anywhere in the world today.
Fabien Galthié's has named the 2022 Barbarians squad, and it looks like French superstars Charles Ollivon and Virimi Vakatawa will lead the charge. Toulon teammates Louis Carbonel, Jean-Baptiste Gros and Christopher Tolofua are also on the sheet, alongside Australia's Will Skelton and Fiji's Levani Botia. Former ex-England second-row George Kruis will also start for the Baa Baas in what will be his final competitive rugby match.
So, a tough challenge awaits Eddie Jones' England. After a disappointing Six Nations campaign that saw the Red Rose finish third with two wins, and a huge tour with Australia on the horizon, Jones has gone with an experimental XV. Tom Curry will skipper England, aided and abetted by scrum half Harry Randall. Bevan Rodd and Will Collier join hooker Jack Walker up front, while Jonny Hill moves to lock alongside Charlie Ewels.
"This is a young team, they have prepared really well and worked hard over the past few camps to come together as a group," said Jones. "It is a great opportunity to play in this England XV side and show what they can do.... We’ll use it as an opportunity to develop combinations and assess players for the Australia tour."
