Harlequins prop Joe Marler has been the latest addition to the Barbarians squad that will line-up against England at Twickenham on 2nd June.
Marler, who had played 59 Tests for England had already announced retirement from international rugby in September last year and will now feature for the invitational side for the first time with Pat Lam in charge.
Already Barbarians have managed to secure the services of harles Piutau, John Afoa, Steven Luatua Malakai Fekitoa, Rhys Webb and Facundo Isa for the Quilter Cup contest and Marler will only add further strength as they would like to repeat their 63-45 win when they last met.
"Playing for the Barbarians is something I never thought would happen so I’m really excited to be involved - it's a bit of dream come true," said Marler.
"I've played against them for England, most recently last year, but it didn't cross my mind that I'd get an invitation so I'm delighted to have been approached.
"I'm really looking forward to running out at Twickenham again but there's also a bit of trepidation about walking into the Barbarians team room.
"It'll be like the first day at school when you're setting out to make a good impression. I know a few people like John Afoa but I'm sure I'll have to win the others over!"
