WITH RENE RANGER, David Smith and Joe Rokocoko in the squad, the Barbarians were already packing a pretty tasty punch ahead of their game against Ireland later this month.

Now they’ve added two more Lions stars to the panel, calling up Alex Cuthbert and Adam Jones for the game in Thomond Park on 28 May.

The two Welshmen don’t exactly need much hyping but the official Baa-Baas Twitter account didn’t hesitate, describing Cuthbert as “harder hitting than a Panorama special” and Jones as a “legend who rampages around the field like a grizzly bear with a hangover.”

The game takes place just two days before the Guinness Pro12 final on Saturday 30, with the Baa-Baas taking on an England XV on Sunday 31 at Twickenham.

Tickets for the Ireland v Barbarians match are priced from €30 and family (1 adult & 1 junior) terrace packs from €25 at www.ticketmaster.ie or 0818 719 300.
