Barbarians v Fiji: preview

With a month of rugby internationals to whet the appetite of union fans the world over, the opening weekend's Barbarians vs Fiji clash is sure to be a spectacle to kick things off in flamboyant style.

Barbarians games are rarely dull and the last time they butted up against the Flying Fijians in 2019, the Pacific Islanders came out 33-31 winners in a thriller.

Currently ranked 11th in the world, Fiji had a World Cup to remember last year, with their 22-15 win against Australia the highlight of this proud rugby nation's history. That was balanced out with a loss against Portugal, and England just about had enough in their tank to dump the Fijians out at the quarter-final stage. Their busy upcoming schedule sees Fiji travel between Georgia, the US, Wales and Ireland after the visit to Twickenham, and a win today would be a sweet way to start.

Their mission is an intimidating one, however, with the Baa-Baas compiling an immense squad that boasts a scarcely credible 968 Test caps between them. Danny Care, Jonathan Joseph, Jonny May, Kyle Sinckler and Ben Youngs are among the English contingent, with international superstars Sam Whitelock, Gael Fickou and Scott Sio all in the 23-man squad, too.

Barbarians vs Fiji teams:

Barbarians XV: 15 Fihaki, 14 Fainga'anuku, 13 Vakatawa, 12 Fickou, 11 May, 10 Burke, 9 Care, 1 Sio, 2 Thacker, 3 Sinckler, 4 Ribbans, 5 Whitelock, 6 Cornelsen, 7 Boshier, 8 Mercer

Fiji XV: 15 Botitu, 14 Momo, 13 Waqaicece, 12 Vota, 11 Rakuro, 10 Muntz, 9 Matawalu, 1 Natave, 2 Togiatama, 3 Tawake, 4 Vocevoce, 5 Rotuisolia, 6 Derenalagi, 7 Murray, 8 Canakaivata

This is rugby union in its purest form. So keep reading for all the information you need to watch a Barbarians v Fiji live stream, including TV channels and Killik Cup streaming services around the world.
