Cape Town - The Barbarians have announced that four more Springbok players will represent them when they tackle Fiji later this month.

The Barbarians tackle the Islanders on November 30 at Twickenham in London and on Monday announced further additions to their squad.

They announced via their official Twitter feed that South Africans Coenie Oosthuizen, Duane Vermeulen, Patrick Lambie and Willie le Roux will be part of the squad.

This follows an earlier announcement that Schalk Burger and Jean de Villiers would also be in the Barbarians team.

The BaaBaas will be coached by the All Blacks' Steve Hansen, with the full squad yet to be announced.

All the above-mentioned Springboks - excluding Burger - are currently on tour with the Boks in Europe.

They tackle Scotland in Edinburgh on Sunday (kick-off 17:00 SA time).
