Barbarians look set to name former Worcester Warriors players in squad


    OWEN Williams is one of four former Worcester Warriors players being lined-up by the Barbarians for their clash with Northampton Saints at the end of November.

    The invitational side look set to welcome Francois Hougaard, Perry Humphreys and Graham Kitchener alongside Williams to the squad for the game with Saints at Franklin’s Gardens on Saturday November 26.

    The four will follow in the footsteps of Donncha O’Callaghan and Niall Annett, who were the only two Worcester players to make an appearance for the famous side.

    Northampton arranged the Barbarians match after their Premiership game with Worcester was cancelled, with Quins and Bath following suit.

    The Baa-Baas side that day could see the likes of Danny Cipriani and Marland Yarde return to rugby, as well as giving chances to a couple of Wasps players who were recently let go after the club entered administration.

    England international Dan Robson who was among the 167 people made redundant following Wasps’ administration – is also set to feature, as are ex-Saints title winners Tom Wood and Luther Burrell.

    The Baa-Baas have a number of games set-up through the autumn, including tests with an All Blacks XV, Harlequins and Bath.
