Uncapped Wasps back Elliot Daly has been called into a star-studded Barbarians squad to face England and the British and Irish Lions.

The Barbarians have also confirmed that Saracens and South Africa hooker Schalk Brits, Exeter's Australian lock Dean Mumm, Italian prop Andrea Lo Cicero and Fijian wing Timoci Nagusa will line up for them this summer.

Northampton's Samu Manoa will join up with the Barbarians squad for the Lions game in Hong Kong after playing for Saints in the Aviva Premiership final.

Daly is one of three uncapped players - joining Wasps team-mate Sam Jones and Ulster's Jared Payne - in a 28-man squad for the fixtures at Twickenham on May 26 and Hong Kong on June 1.

Italy captain Sergio Parisse, Harlequins fly-half Nick Evans and Samoan scrum-half Kahn Fotuali'i were among the first global stars to sign up for the Barbarians, who will be coached by Wasps director of rugby Dai Young.

They have since been joined by the likes of Wales fly-half James Hook, former All Black wing Joe Rokocoko and Leicester's Italian prop Martin Castrogiovanni.
