We have come to that time of the week when Planet Rugby brings you all an offering of a stand-out video we know you’ll like the look of.

Our recent choices have seen ITM Cup action, European history, an epic at The Rec and Currie Cup glory selected as we continue to scour the archives.

This week, in honour of the Barbarians and Australia facing off at Twickenham, we go back to the last time these two sides met on the same ground in 2011.

James O’Connor starred that day at fly-half for the Wallabies in the 60-11 rout, with Rugby League sensation Sam Tomkins turning out on the wing. We’ve added the scorers and full teams below.

Enjoy!
