Winger Morahan among Aussies in Baa-Baas

Four Wallabies including unlucky winger Luke Morahan have been added to the Barbarians squad to face South Africa, the Czech Republic and Fiji next month.

Western Force winger Morahan, as well as Sam Carter, Paddy Ryan and Toby Smith, have joined the invitational squad to be coached by former Wallabies boss Robbie Deans.

Uncapped Queensland Reds hooker Andrew Ready and Rebels halfback Nic Stirzaker have also been included.

Two-Test Wallaby and NSW winger Taqele Naiyaravoro, who played for the Baa-Baas against Samoa in 2015, was previously announced in the line-up as was former Test backrower Wycliff Palu and current Australian lock Will Skelton, meaning there will be a heavy Wallabies presence.

Morahan, who has two Test caps, was bumped out of the Wallabies touring squad with former Melbourne Storm league convert Marika Koroibete taking his place.

Koroibete was himself tipped to play for the Barbarians but may instead line up in the Australian mid-week side to face the French Barbarians in Bordeaux on November 24.

Other players included overnight were three-Test All Black Seta Tamanivalu and Auckland Blues speedster Melani Nanai.

The first match is against the Springboks at London's Wembley Stadium on November 5.

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