Cape Town - Eddie Jones' Barbarians side recreated England's infamous Rugby World Cup 'V' formation in response to Fiji's pre-match Cibi dance at Twickenham on Saturday - but legally this time around.

Jones' England side were hit with a £2 000 (R38 000) fine for crossing the halfway line when lining up to face the All Blacks' haka in their World Cup semi-final in Japan.

However, the Barbarians were careful to adhere to World Rugby's protocols this time around, keeping to their half.

Fiji went on to beat the Barbarians 33-31 in the first of three matches the invitational side will play this month.

Up next for Jones' side are Brazil in Sao Paulo on Wednesday, November 20, followed by Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, November 30.
