Baa-baas sign up Eddie Jones for Twickenham date

England Head Coach Eddie Jones will take charge of the Barbarians the team when they return to Twickenham on Saturday 16 November to face Fiji. 

The game will be the first major rugby match to be staged in the UK following the 2019 Rugby World Cup, in which Jones will be hoping to lead England to their first global triumph since 2003.  

Tickets are on general sale now from www.ticketmaster.co.uk/barbarians with a special early bird offer and 50 per cent off top price adult tickets for a limited time only. 

Jones will be leading the Barbarians in the only Autumn International of 2019 to be played at Twickenham, as the Baa-baas take on Fiji for the Killik Cup just two weeks after the 2019 Rugby World Cup final in Japan.

The Australian also worked alongside White as assistant coach for the Barbarians when they played Australia in 2008 in the first rugby match to be held at the new Wembley Stadium. 

Jones will lead a Baa-baas team containing a number of this year’s Rugby World Cup stars, who will pull on the famous black and white shirt to play a Fiji side with some of the most skilled players in the game. 

The last time the two teams met at Twickenham, in November 2013, more than 68,000 fans were treated to a spectacle of running rugby, with the Barbarians stealing the show in an electric 43-19 win.
