International rugby set for all-star return on October 25th

England are set to return to action against an all-star Barbarians XV at Twickenham on October 25th.

It would be the first time Jones’s side have played since the home win over Wales during the 2020 Six Nations on March 7.

It’s understood that 30,000 tickets for the fixture have already been sold with the RFU hoping that the ground could be half full.

Eddie Jones’ men were supposed to have taken on the Baa-Baas before they embarked on a two-Test tour of Japan.

EDITORS PICKS:

According to the Mail Online, Semi Radradra, Chris Robshaw and ex-All Black skipper Kieran Read have all been approached to play in the fixture.

The men in white will then head to Italy six days later for their rescheduled ‘Super Saturday’ to round off the interrupted Six Nations campaign.
