Cape Town - The Barbarians have confirmed they will be back in action against Argentina at Twickenham on December 1 for the annual Killik Cup game.

The famous invitational side stunned England by running in nine tries at Twickenham last weekend, winning the match 63-45 in a thriller.

Now they are set to take on the Pumas after their last meeting in a spectacular 125th Barbarians anniversary match in 2015 which saw 12 tries scored as Argentina won 49-31.

The BaaBaas fielded the likes of Fiji great Nemani Nadolo, Australia’s Tevita Kuridrani, New Zealand’s Ryan Crotty and South Africa’s Pat Lambie in that game.

And the 2018 instalment will see the Barbarians once again bring together another superstar side including legends from New Zealand, South Africa and Australia.

“We’re delighted to take on the Pumas once more and with all the talent at our disposal it should be another match full of exciting attacking play,” said Barbarians President Micky Steele-Bodger.

“Twickenham will provide a great stage and we’ll be doing our best to really test Argentina as they continue their build-up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup.”
