Alex Goode will line up for the Barbarians against England at Twickenham Stadium this weekend.

The Saracens and England full-back has joined the famous invitation side’s ranks for the match. Goode is a double Champions Cup winner with Sarries, whose Premiership title defence ended at Exeter last weekend.

He made the most recent of his 21 Test appearances against Fiji last November, scoring a try in England’s 58-15 victory.

Goode joins a Barbarians squad with more than 1,000 caps of international experience and Head Coach Vern Cotter now has the likes of Adam Ashley-Cooper, Horacio Agulla, Waisea Nayacalevu and David Smith competing for places in the back three.

Twelve nationalities are represented in the squad with players from England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Argentina, Samoa, Fiji and Georgia.

After taking on England the Barbarians travel to Belfast to face Ulster at the Kingspan Stadium on June 1.
