New Zealand wing Sitiveni Sivivatu will make his first appearance for the Barbarians when they take on England at Twickenham on June 1.

The Clermont star, who scored 33 tries in 48 Tests for the All Blacks, is one of 12 players named in an updated Barbarians squad to face England before they fly to New Zealand to begin a three-Test series.

Sivivatu joins the likes of All Blacks colleagues Hosea Gear, Andrew Hore and Joe Rokocoko, and Australians Brock James and James O'Connor in a squad that currently boasts more than 400 international caps between them.

The remainder of the squad, which will be coached by Worcester Warrior's Dean Ryan, is set to be confirmed next week.

Barbarians group, backs: Jimmy Cowan (Gloucester & New Zealand), Hosea Gear (Toulouse & New Zealand), Brock James (Clermont), James O'Connor (London Irish & Australia), Joe Rokocoko (Bayonne & New Zealand), Benson Stanley (Clermont & New Zealand), Sitiveni Sivivatu (Clermont & New Zealand).

Forwards: Andrew Hore (Unattached & New Zealand), Juan-Martin Leguizamon (Lyon & Argentina), Sona Taumalolo (Perpignan & Tonga), Joe Tekori (Toulouse & Samoa), Davit Zirakashvili (Clermont & Georgia).
