Juan Manuel Leguizamon at Barbarians training

Captain: Leguizamon

Argentina's Juan Manuel Leguizamon will captain the Barbarians in their game against England, with Hosea Gear and Rene Ranger also starting.

Leguizamon will line up alongside Frenchman Alexandre Lapandry and Georgian Mamuka Gorgodze in the back-row for Sunday's clash.

In front of them will be experienced second-row duo Juandre Kruger and Donncha O'Callaghan while Davit Kubriashvili and Sona Taumalolo combine down either side of hooker Ti'i Paulo.

The backline is missing James O'Connor who has had to withdraw but it still possesses real quality in the shape of Juan Martin Hernandez, Joe Rokocoko and Gear in the back-three.

Ranger is alongside fellow New Zealand international Benson Stanley in midfield while former All Black Jimmy Cowan is scrum-half in a combination with number ten Brock James.

Barbarians: 15 Juan Martin Hernandez, 14 Joe Rokocoko, 13 Rene Ranger, 12 Benson Stanley, 11 Hosea Gear, 10 Brock James, 9 Jimmy Cowan, 8 Mamuka Gorgodze, 7 Alexandre Lapandry, 6 Juan Manuel Leguizamon (c), 5 Juandre Kruger, 4 Donncha O'Callaghan, 3 Davit Kubriashvili, 2 Ti'i Paulo, 1 Sona Taumalolo.
Replacements: 16 Andrew Hore, 17 Julien Brugnaut, 18 Nahuel Lobo, 19 Joe Tekori, 20 Roger Wilson, 21 Tomas Cubelli, 22 Francois Trinh-Duc, 23 Anthony Tuitavake.
