Nehe Milner-Skudder tops the list of All Blacks invited to feature in games against Argentina and Gloucester. The rookie wing now has seven tries in his first six Tests for New Zealand and will be joined by scrum half Tewira Kerr-Barlow, wing Waisake Naholo and prop Charlie Faumuina from the current World Cup squad, and reinforced by centre Ryan Crotty, fly half Lima Sopoaga and uncapped flanker Ardie Savea.

The Barbarians, take on Gloucester on November 17 at Kingsholm before facing the Pumas at Twickenham Stadium on November 21.

The cosmopolitan squad will see the All Blacks line-up alongside South Africa’s Victor Matfield, Tendai Mtawarira and Patrick Lambie, as well as former Springboks lock Bakkies Botha.

They will work with new coach Australia’s Michael Cheika, who will have Wallabies players Stephen Moore, Greg Holmes and Scott Fardy available to him and giant Fiji wing Nemani Nadolo.

“The Barbarians do a wonderful job of bringing different nations and talent together to celebrate rugby on the world stage,” said Cheika.

With Milner-Skudder and Nadolo on their respective wings, it should be quite a celebration.

Tickets to Gloucester v Barbarians at Kingsholm cost from £15 (adults) and £5 (children).
