Cape Town - The Barbarians, laden with South Africans and All Blacks, are preparing for Saturday's clash against New Zealand at Twickenham. 

It promises to be an intriguing affair and there are no fewer than nine South Africans and 13 Kiwis who will line up against the world champions in London. 

There's always a 'light-hearted' element whenever the Barbarians play, and the squad got up to some Halloween tricks in a video posted on the side's official Twitter account. 

The video posted on Tuesday reveals Barbarians coach Robbie Deans conducting a team meeting with his players dressed up in their Halloween costumes. 

Captain America, Batman, the Grim Reaper, the Incredible Hulk and Dracula can all be spotted, though it is not so easy to tell who the players are. 

Despite there always being time for a laugh or two in a BaaBaas week, things will get serious come 17:00 on Saturday.

Barbarians squad:


Ruan Ackermann (Gloucester), Dominic Bird (Chiefs), Willie Britz (Sunwolves), Sam Carter (Brumbies), Simone Favaro (Fiamme Oro), Ben Franks (London Irish), Dillon Hunt (Highlanders), Steven Luatua (Bristol), Atu Moli (Chiefs), Kwagga Smith (Lions), Ruan Smith (Toyota Verblitz), Adriaan Strauss (Bulls), Akker van der Merwe (Sharks), Jacques van Rooyen (Lions), Luke Whitelock (Highlanders & New Zealand)


Vince Aso (Hurricanes), George Bridge (Crusaders), Richard Buckman (Highlanders), Mitchell Drummond (Crusaders), Robert du Preez (Stormers), Andy Ellis (Kobelco Steelers), Richie Mo'unga (Crusaders), Taqele Naiyaravoro (Waratahs), Julian Savea (Hurricanes), Nic Stirzaker (Rebels), Harold Vorster (Lions)
