Former All Blacks hooker Anton Oliver and Wallabies international Dan Vickerman have been confirmed for the Barbarians' clash against Scarlets at the newly-opened Parc y Scarlets.
The duo are the first names to be confirmed for the official opening of the Welsh region's state-of-the-art stadium on January 31.
Both have represented the Baa-Baas before - Oliver on three occasions on the 2004 summer tour of England, Scotland and Wales and Vickerman against the All Blacks at Twickenham later the same year.
Oliver and Vickerman played in the recent Varsity match and they will be joined against the Scarlets by Cambridge University captain and England XV hooker Jon Dawson.
