The Barbarians will be coached by Springbok coach and South Africa’s Director of Rugby when they take on Argentina for the Killik Cup at Twickenham on 1 December 2018.
SA Rugby’s Director of Rugby, Rassie Erasmus, will take charge of the Barbarians for the first time when the famous club returns to action later this season.
“It’s a terrific honour to be invited to coach the Barbarians later this year and it should be a great occasion at Twickenham,” said Erasmus.
“The Barbarians are renowned for bringing together great individuals and the challenge for coaches is moulding them into a team that plays wonderful rugby.”
Australia scrumhalf Will Genia is another Test player included in the squad with more big name acquisitions expected to be announced in due course.
“There’s a lot of important games for South Africa between now and then but the chance to work with a new group and take on Argentina once more will be a great end to the year.”
Argentina, who won the last fixture between the sides in 2015, made history of their own last weekend with a 23-19 win over the Wallabies in Australia – their first there in 35 years.
The Barbarians side pulled off a record-breaking win over England earlier this year when the famous invitational side won 63-45.
