The Barbarians have recruited Ireland and Ulster winger, Tommy Bowe for their clash with Fiji this month.

The 32-year-old was confirmed to be joining fellow Ulster players Ruan Pienaar and Dan Tuohy in the Baa-Baas squad to face Fiji at the Kingspan Stadium on November 11th.

Bowe will make up a 28-man panel from both sides of the hemisphere, including All Blacks Andy Ellis and Seta Tamanivalu, as well as Australian internationals Paddy Ryan and Sam Carter for the mouth-watering clash in Belfast.

The Ulster winger was left out of Joe Schmidt’s squad for their upcoming international series as he tried to get himself up to match fitness following a lengthy lay-off. Bowe hasn’t played for Ireland since being stretchered off against Argentina at last year’s Rugby World Cup quarter final.

The former Lions winger will be hoping to impress in the game and hope to get back to international level in time for next year’s RBS Six Nations and potentially put his hand for selection for Warren Gatland’s 2017 tour side.
