The New Zealand All Blacks take on the Barbarians this Saturday for the Killik Cup in what promises to be an incredible day of rugby. Featuring some of the best rugby players on the planet, the game will mark the start of the mighty All Blacks’ European Tour and will take place at the home of rugby, Twickenham Stadium.
Following their enthralling summer series against the British & Irish Lions, the All Blacks head to Twickenham to play the Baa-Baas in celebration of New Zealand Rugby Union’s 125th anniversary. The match will see the return of the World Champions to London for the first time since they won the 2015 World Cup in the same city.
The game will renew one of rugby’s most historic rivalries, which dates back to their first meeting in 1954. It was during the sides’ 1973 contest that Gareth Edwards famously scored one of greatest tries of all time, helping the Barbarians to a 23-11 victory at Cardiff Arms Park.
A strong New Zealand contingent will feature in the Barbarians side too this Saturday with the likes of former All Blacks Ben Franks and Steven Luatua being added to a 26-man squad that already included 13 Kiwis, such as Julian Savea, Andy Ellis and Dominic Bird.
New Zealand All Blacks v Barbarians takes place this Saturday 4th November at Twickenham Stadium at 3pm. There are still tickets available for the game, starting at £55 for adults/£35 for concessions. Head over to the Ticketmaster Website now to get yours!
