Steve Hansen: Will coach the Barbarians against Fiji in November
New Zealand coach Steve Hansen will take charge of the Barbarians for their November clash with Fiji at Twickenham.
Hansen previously coached the Crusaders and Wales before joining the backroom staff of the All Blacks, helping them to win the World Cup in 2011.
Hansen replaced Sir Graham Henry at the helm after the tournament, and he has subsequently guided New Zealand to 19 wins in 21 Tests. Their only defeat came against England last year at Twickenham, while Australia held them to a draw.
The Barbarians have also confirmed South Africa duo Schalk Burger and Jean de Villiers will play in the clash on November 30 which marks the centenary of the Fiji Rugby Union.
Fiji famously recorded a ground-breaking 29-9 win over the Barbarians back in 1970.
