England and Barbarians face off for the first time in three years today, and with Fabien Galthie taking charge of the Baa-Baas at Twickenham, there's a little bit of extra flavor in the mix. Eddie Jones is a man under pressure, and he could do with some breathing room ahead of a legacy-defining series of contests. Read on as our guide explains how to watch an England vs Barbarians live stream wherever you are right now.

England skipper Owen Farrell won the club battle with Marcus Smith, but he may lose the war at international level. His young rival has a chance to make the starting spot his own ahead of a period that includes an Australia tour, the Autumn Nations Series, the Six Nations and the World Cup.
It's the selection of Danny Care that's really caught the eye though. The veteran scrum-half has been a standout performer for the Quins, and could play for England for the first time since November 2018. Uncapped Northampton full-back Tommy Freeman is another selection that's captured the imagination of fans, and Bath wing Joe Cokanasiga is in line for his long-awaited return from injury.
Charles Ollivon lost the France captaincy after sustaining a serious knee injury, and he'll be taking his role as Barbarians skipper extra seriously as a result. He's joined in the squad by Toulon teammates Louis Carbonel, Jean-Baptiste Gros and Christopher Tolofua, and La Rochelle duo Will Skelton and Levani Botia will be flying high after conquering Europe.
There'll also be a send-off for former England lock George Kruis, representing Barbarians in his final game this afternoon before retirement.
