Twickenham is the setting for the international fixture between the All Blacks and Barbarians.

There is a noticeable South African flavour in London with no fewer than NINE South Africans in the BaaBaas squad.

However, the All Blacks with flyhalf Beauden Barrett at the helm will look to get back to their winning ways.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 17:00 SA time.
