The Barbarians have added four further names to their star-studded squad to face England and Wales.
Former All Black prop Carl Hayman is joined in the squad by his Toulon team-mate Paul Sackey, while Biarritz winger Iain Balshaw and Stade Francais centre Mathieu Bastareaud will also wear the famous shirt against England on May 29 and Wales on June 4.
South Africa internationals Francois Steyn and Ruan Pienaar are among the other names already confirmed for the Baa Baas, along with former Australia flanker George Smith and Italy's inspirational captain Sergio Parisse.
England manager Martin Johnson will use the Barbarians game and the Churchill Cup that follows as an opportunity to finalise his 50-man Rugby World Cup training squad, which will be named on June 17.
