Dean Dewdney and Craig Morgan have been picked alongside Jamie Robinson and Craig Quinnell in the Barbarians team to play the East Midlands at Bedford on 15 March (7.00pm) in the annual Mobbs Memorial Match.
The Barbarians starting line-up includes six international players and eight new Club members, with Springbok legend Bob Skinstad leading the team.
In the pack are the Quinnell brothers, Gavin and Craig, whilst debutant Dean Dewdney plays at scrum half and follows in the footsteps of another Zimbabwe international, Adrian Garvey, in becoming a Baa-Baa.
Barbarians' honorary secretary Geoffrey Windsor-Lewis said, "This looks a well-balanced side with five nationalities represented. Last season the Mobbs Memorial Match returned to Bedford after an interval of several seasons. It was a great success and we are delighted to be playing there again - and we believe this team will do justice to the occasion".
This month's Mobbs Memorial Match will be the 79th in a series that began in 1921. The Barbarians won last year's match 48-17.
