The assembled side are set to face the Wallabies at the Stade Chaban-Delmas on November 24.

Rougerie, 36, is set to captain the side. Capo Ortega (Castres) and Connor (Montpellier) are likely to be key figures in the team coached by Bordeaux-Bègles boss Raphaël Ibanez.

The French Barbarians last played in 2015 in a two-match series against Argentina, in which they won the first contest 28-22 before suffering a 21-9 defeat.
