BaaBaas team

As a nice touch Phil Waugh has been announced as captain of the Barbarians.
There’s a head fuck for you.

As per last week , there’s a lot of class in this team (except for Balshaw), although perhaps a few positional oddities; I haven’t seen much of McAlister at 10 for example. Look out for Shalk Brits from the bench  – had a cracker last week.

Oh yeah, and there’s some ex-Mungo starting at 13.
