Harlequins star Joe Marler will pull on the iconic Barbarians FC jersey next month as the famous invitational side face an All Blacks XV at Tottenham Stadium on Sunday, November 13.
Marler enjoys his second stint in the Barbarians camp, having made his sensational debut for the Barbarians against England at Twickenham in 2019, and subsequently returned to the England fold for the Rugby World Cup 2019 just four months later.
Marler will then swap the Famous Black and White shirt for their usual Quartered jersey as he plays for Quins against the Barbarians at The Stoop on Thursday, November 17.
Super Rugby champions Crusaders’ Head Coach Scott “Razor” Robertson will lead the famous invitational side for the Killik Cup and against Harlequins.
Speaking of his time in the Barbarians camp previously, Marler said: “The Barbarians still have an important place in professional rugby. It’s even more important now to have it because everything is so intense, so pressurised and serious.
“You need to have an opportunity to enjoy rugby for the reasons you started playing for. You just want to pick up the ball and play and have fun.
“[The Barbarians] hold onto the core values of the game,” which is a huge part of the Barbarians’ own creed.
