Here is the Wales rugby squad to face the Barbarians on November 30 . Wayne Pivac has included exciting young uncapped back-rowers Taine Basham and Shane Lewis-Hughes in his first Welsh squad for their clash with the Barbarians at Principality Stadium on November 30.
Referee: Nigel Owens (Wales)
Wales will take on the Barbarians at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 30th November and Warren Gatland will coach the Baa-Baas team. Wales women will also face the Barbarians making it an exciting double-header event*.
Gatland is set to leave his post as Wales head coach after the Rugby World Cup in Japan, so this fixture will be Wayne Pivac’s first match in charge of Wales as he goes up against his predecessor.
Wales last faced the Barbarians in 2012 when they beat the invitation side 30-21 at the (then) Millennium Stadium. Wales and the Barbarians have only played each other in four matches at test level, with honours currently even at two wins apiece.
*The Wales Women v Barbarians match will kick-off at 11:45am. The Wales Men v Barbarians match will kick-off at 2:45pm. One ticket covers entry to both matches.
