Steve Hansen to coach Barbarians
September 18, 2013
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen will take charge of the Barbarians' end-of-year match against Fiji at Twickenham.
The historic invitational side will face Fiji at Twickenham on November 30 and will be Hansen who presides over them. He took over from Sir Graham Henry after the 2011 World Cup and has led the Kiwis to 19 wins in 21 matches as boss of the All Blacks.
And the BaaBaas have also announced two Springboks will be in the mix for the match. World Cup winners Jean de Villiers and Schalk Burger will both be in the Barbarians ranks as the team looks to bounce back from heavy losses to England and the British & Irish Lions in the summer.
