Veteran fly-half Stephen Jones looks set to line-up alongside Shane Williams for the Barbarians against Wales in Cardiff on June 2.
Jones is currently Wales' record caps holder on 104 and with Rhys Priestland in the driving seat for the fly-half berth for their tour to Australia, Jones may miss out on the trip. But after being named in the Barbarians' squad for the summer, Jones may still get the chance to run out at the Millennium Stadium.
But one man who has been omitted is flanker Martyn Williams. There are growing calls in Wales for the 99-cap openside to be named in the squad for the match against the Barbarians - which will be a recognised Test - in order for him to hit the century mark.
Jones and Williams will be joined in the squad by the likes of Joe Rokocoko, Stephen Donald, Brad Thorn, Ruan Pienaar and George Smith.
