After selecting 13 South Africa internationals for his 23-man squad, Barbarians head coach Rassie Erasmus has included eight Springboks in the starting XV to face Argentina at Twickenham.
Handre Pollard starts at fly-half for the invitational team, while South Africa captain Siya Kolisi and hooker Schalk Brits form part of a formidable forward contingent that also includes former All Black Wyatt Crockett, who captains the team.
Further international pedigree is added by the likes of Italy winger Tommaso Benvenuti and Argentina back-row Juan Manuel Leguizamon, who has played in 85 Tests for the Pumas.
