Barbarians vs World XV tickets now live ahead of Twickenham 2023 game

The Barbarians v World XV game promises to be an exciting one, with rival coaches Eddie Jones and Steve Hansen going head-to-head once again in London next May.

Both Barbarians and World XV are rugby union teams organised on an invitational basis, with World XV composed of players invited from various countries, and Barbarians being a British-based club.

Barbarians are affectionately known as the world’s most famous rugby club, with a rich history dating back to 1890. Over the years, 31 nationalities have represented the Barbarians – and in the weeks leading up to next year’s fixture, players across the globe will once again come together to form the Barbarians and the World XV sides.

Former England coach Jones has been appointed to the Barbarians, meaning he’ll return to Twickenham Stadium. Jones will be up against ex-All Blacks player and former New Zealand coach Hansen. Back in 2019, Jones and England achieved a World Cup semi-final victory over New Zealand, but who will claim the Killik Cup in 2023?

Speaking about being appointed coach, Jones said: “It’s an incredible honour to be asked to coach the Barbarians for a second time. The club showed during the autumn that the values and traditions which make the Barbarians so special are still very much alive. Fans can expect to see two top-quality teams, packed full of international players, going all out to catch the eye ahead of the Rugby World Cup.”
