England vs Barbarians live stream: How to watch rugby on TV and online in UK today



England battle the Barbarians at Twickenham this afternoon for the first time since 2019 in their final fixture before this summer’s three-Test tour of Australia.

While the annual contest against a star-studded invitational squad is a non-cap affair, it remains crucially important as fringe and uncapped players attempt to take their last chance to impress head coach Eddie Jones and book a seat on the plane down under.

England are without those Leicester and Saracens stars that reached Saturday’s gripping Premiership final at the same venue, which Tigers won 15-12 thanks to a last-gasp drop goal from Freddie Burns, meaning opportunity knocks for a number of this inexperienced squad.

Injuries have also deprived Jones of key performers such as centres Manu Tuilagi and Henry Slade, only adding to the sense of uncertainty as he prepares to name his squad to tour Australia on Monday.

England’s young team will be sorely tested by a Barbarians outfit coached by French boss Fabien Galthie that feature 14 players from the Top 14 and a few members of Les Bleus’ Six Nations-winning squad, plus retiring former England lock George Kruis.

England vs Barbarians date, kick-off time and venue

England vs Barbarians takes place on Sunday June 19, 2022 with kick-off scheduled for 3pm BST.

Twickenham Stadium in south-west London will play host to proceedings.

London Irish duo Henry Arundell and Will Joseph are not in the squad, with the former suffering from a muscle strain. Bath wing Joe Cokanasiga is back in an England shirt, while there is a big chance for Gloucester’s Mark Atkinson in the middle.

The Barbarians, meanwhile, are captained by French skipper Charles Ollivon, who is joined by Les Bleus team-mates including Virimi Vakatawa, Damian Penaud, Dylan Cretin, Jean-Baptiste Gros, Baptiste Couilloud and Pierre Bourgarit.

Kruis plays for the final time as a professional against the country for whom he won 45 caps, lining up alongside Australian and ex-Saracens team-mate Will Skelton in the second row.

England have won five of the last seven affairs, including the last match at Twickenham in 2019, when a vastly understrength team pulled off a shock 51-43 victory.
