Barnard played 12 times for South Africa but his only official Test appearance was as a replacement for Piston van Wyk against New Zealand at Newlands in 1970.

Although Barnard did not play in the Tests, Louw's only two full caps came in that series.
Louw was a Transvaal selector and also coached locally.
