Left out by England, Tom de Glanville has been included by the Barbarians... to play England
The Barbarians have announced the full squad they have in camp ahead of Sunday’s Quilter Cup match against England and it includes Tom de Glanville who was released by England this week having been in their three-day camp last week.
British and Irish Lion and former Scotland lock Nathan Hines also joins Vern Cotter’s coaching team alongside Glen Jackson, who comes full circle in the Barbarians having played for the side in five Tests in 2008/09.
Cotter’s side are bolstered by seven Flying Fijians who all play rugby on the island and will bring their exhilarating brand of rugby to the squad.
A rising star at Bath, de Glanville joins the Barbarians for the England game and follows in his father’s footsteps some 27 years on. He will be looking to impress Eddie Jones on Sunday after he was excused from the England squad announced on Tuesday.
Harlequins prop Simon Kerrod adds further strength to the front row, completing a squad that will be aiming to give England a challenging encounter ahead of the completion of their Six Nations campaign and Autumn Nations Cup.
