Views from the camp
England XV head coach Jim Mallinder: “Preparations have gone really well this week. It’s a new group of players and coaches but we have come together and had some really good training days and looking forward to the game on Sunday.
“We have got a really balance in the squad between some experienced Premiership players, some with international caps and a lot of youth that has come through the system and played at England U18 and U20 level but also have played really well for their clubs. This game will be massive for them and you can see their motivation and desire. They all have really deserved the opportunity this weekend.”
Barbarians head coach Pat Lam: "We’ve got really good experience across the board and it’s great that there are nine different countries represented.
"Overall we’ve selected experience and size up front, exciting players who can make things happen from nothing, and we have some firepower out wide.
"This is a unique team with quality players and it will only play together this one time. So as per last year, I’ll be setting out to get our preparation right on and off the field to ensure we come together as brothers in a short amount of time to hopefully be a world class team on Sunday.”
