Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Former Ireland international Fergus McFadden has been called up to the Barbarians squad for this weekend’s game with England at Twickenham.
McFadden, who played 34 times for Ireland and over 180 times for Leinster, recently retired from the game but will play one final game in the famous black and white colours of the Baa-Baas.
The famous touring side are limited in who they can call-up with the way the season has panned out but have still managed to put together a decent squad.
Former England captain Chris Robshaw is included as is Richard Wigglesworth and talented Saracens youngster Manu Vunipola.
