England vs Barbarians rugby - where and when

It's the end of the season for rugby union so that means we're in for a treat in the form of the Quilter Cup clash between England and the mighty Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium.

The game is due to kick-off on Sunday May 27 at 3pm BST, 10am ET, 7am PT, 12 midnight AEST.

The end of season rugby finale is all set in the form of the Quilter Cup clash between England and the Barbarians. As always Twickenham is in for a dazzler of a display from the world class players involved. And if you're wondering where you can watch a live stream of he match, look no further.

The England squad, as laid out by head coach Eddie Jones, has come under scrutiny after Wasps fly-half Danny Cipriani was named. The 30-year-old was last capped for England as a full-back in a 2015 warm-up match with France, and his inclusion back in the squad has been the major talking point in the build up.

Pat Lam, head coach for the Baa-Baas has announced his squad with one of the most varied squads in the team's 118-year history with players from New Zealand, Ireland and Fiji to name a few. All eyes will be on World Cup winning Malakai Fekitoa and Scotland fly half Finn Russell.

After losing the match last year 28-14, the Barbarians will be looking for a little bit of revenge. So with a strong line up on both sides this is set to be a riveting rugby battle royale. You can watch it all live, anywhere. Here's how to enjoy the game via a live stream using our handy guide.
