• Boshoff to join Baa-Baas

    Lions flyhalf Marnitz Boshoff is the latest addition to the Barbarians squad for the match against Australia.

    Boshoff becomes the latest South African to join the squad after a host of forwards were named earlier this month. Coach John Kirwan is slowly getting his squad into place for the match at Twickenham next month, after announcing a host of new recruits on Monday.

    Among them were World Cup-winning flank Adam Thompson and Blues duo Francis Saili and Frank Halai.

    Also added were uncapped New Zealanders Tim Nanai-Williams and Patrick Osborne, as well as the Highanders' Japanese international scrumhalf Fumiaki Tanaka.

    More than 50,000 tickets have already been sold for the match between the famous club side and Ewen McKenzie's Wallabies.

    Barbarians squad – Adam Thompson, Francis Saili, Frank Halai, Tim Nanai-Williams, Patrick Osborne, Fumiaki Tanaka, Mo Schwalger, James Parsons, Nic Cummins, Marnitz Boshoff, Matt Stevens, CJ van der Linde, Coenie Oosthuizen, Thomas du Toit, Michael Rhodes, Jacques Botes, Heinrich Brüssow.
