Henry will be partnered by his assistant, Steve Hansen, for the clash in London.

The pair will be joined by five members of the New Zealand squad they guided to the World Cup title on Sunday, with Sonny Bill Williams, Keven Mealamu, Jerome Kaino, Piri Weepu and Adam Thomson all in the touring club's squad.

Barbarians chairperson John Spencer says "this is a great coup for the Barbarians at this particular time."

Jamie Roberts and Leigh Halfpenny are among five of Wales' World Cup players in a squad also including South Africa's Bryan Habana and Victor Matfield.

Others to appear will include Stirling Mortlock, Danny Cipriani, Jason White, Stephen Jones, Ryan and Adam Jones.

After the Barbarians match, England will play a repeat of the 2010 Women's World Cup final against New Zealand.
