One more time.
Following yesterday’s announcement that Fiji boss Vern Cotter will take charge of the Barbarians when they take on England in the Quilter Cup this month, the famous touring side have announced their first player and it’s a big one.
66-times capped former England captain will have one last hurrah in Europe following his final game for Harlequins last week after being selected to go up against Eddie Jones’ side.
Robshaw, who captained England at the 2015 Rugby World Cup is set to link up with Major League Rugby side San Diego Legion following an incredible career with Quins which saw him represent the club an incredible 300 times.
No other players have been announced just yet but Cotter will be assisted by Glen Jackson for the annual game with England.

We can’t wait to see Robshaw in action against England. No doubt he’ll have a point to prove having been stripped of the captaincy by Jones.
It should be an interesting one!
Goosebumps 🙌 🎤
