    Last time I checked, Taranaki wasn't a national team.

    Not the greatest BaaBaas squad ever assembled, bit of an ageing side. Would have like to see a few younger, perhaps slightly less well established players thrown in there just to shake things up a bit. I think there would be room for it considering it won't be a full strength England side. Or full strength based on the England selectors previous logic anyway.

    And?

    Current club and international honours are listed for each player. Sonny Bill Williams and Paul Tito haven't been capped at international level so only their club side is listed. Not exactly difficult to work out is it?

    Fair enough

    Besides that Paul Tito's efforts for Taranaki are amazing. I think he had over 100 caps for us. He deserves to captain Cardiff.

    I'd have Josh Lewsey captain the squad, seeing as he's hanging up his boots to go and destroy mountains for the living.

    Not sure if the props are the right way round...never pay attention to who plays tighthead or loosehead. I appreciate the craft of scrummaging.

    Springboks join Barbarians squad
    Former South Africa skipper Corne Krige
    Northampton's Corne Krige is a former captain of South Africa
    Six South Africans have been called up to the Barbarians squad to play Scotland and England later this month.

    Corne Krige, Brent Russell, Trevor Halstead, Cobus Visagie, Selborne Boome and A J Venter will all be involved.

    Northampton's New Zealand pair Bruce Reihana and Mark Robinson have also been confirmed, while a number of Australians are expected to play.

    The Wallabies' 1991 World Cup-winning coach Bob Dwyer will prepare what will eventually be a 32-man squad.

    The Baa-Baas play Scotland in Aberdeen on 24 May, then tackle England at Twickenham four days later.
