Both the Barbarians men’s team and their women’s side will play a double header at Twickenham with the women taking on the Springboks and the men facing Samoa. It will be the first time the Barbarians have hosted a men’s and women’s match on the same day.

The women’s team last played in November 2019 where they defeated Wales 29-15 at the Principality Stadium. Taylor, who was formerly Wales Women’s skills coach, will assist Worcester Warriors coach Jo Yapp.
