Three forwards from the Super Rugby champion Hurricanes are among the group along with one-Test loose forward Luke Whitelock for the game at Wembley on November 5.

Brad Shields, Michael Fatialofa and Reggie Goodes are the Hurricanes representatives while Whitelock is joined by a Highlanders teammate, centre Matt Faddes.

The Crusaders provide first five-eighth Richard Mo'unga and flanker Jordan Taufua. They join veteran Crusaders halfback Andy Ellis, who was earlier named for the match.

Coach Robbie Deans had also previously selected two Australians - winger Taquele Naiyaravoro and lock Will Skelton.

The Barbarians will also play the Czech Republic in Prague on November 8 and Fiji in Belfast three days later.
