Barbarians assembling strong squad

Australia international James O'Connor heads a star-studded Barbarians back division for the match against South Africa at Twickenham on December 4.

O'Connor, who converted his own last-minute try as the Wallabies overcame New Zealand in Hong Kong at the weekend, is set to make his debut for the representative side against the Springboks.

Also in the squad are fellow Australians Matt Giteau, Drew Mitchell and Will Genia, All Blacks legends Joe Rokocoko and Ma'a Nonu, and France's Francois Trinh-Duc.

Trinh-Duc has been withdrawn from the November Tests due to a hamstring injury he suffered this weekend, but is expected to be fit for the Barbarians match.
