Mick Byrne's also men tasted victory here on their most recent visit, last August. It was their first ever win over England, and it preceded a superb showing at the World Cup, which saw them reach the quarter-finals for the first time in 16 years and become everyone's second team.

Their run-heavy approach, spearheaded by Waisea Nayacalevu, Semi Radradra and Levani Botia, always serves up thrills, and sixth-time Barbarians coach Robbie Deans has insisted that he intends to fight fire with fire here.

It's a bucket-list moment for All Blacks legend Sam Whitelock, who officially hung up his boots last weekend, but will dust himself down one final time for his Barbarians debut.
