Lancaster has named a 24 man squad to face the Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday, 31st May. Lee Dickson, who will captain the side, will be joined in the squad by Alex Waller, Gareth Denman and Jon Fisher.
“This is an exciting squad with a good mix of young players who have performed well in the Premiership this season, players on the fringes of the World Cup squad and those already selected.” Lancaster commented.
“It gives us some valuable time together before the training camps begin next month to assess those who could come into the group before the World Cup and also a chance to assess those who should come into the reckoning beyond 2015.
“The Barbarians team is full of quality and experienced internationals who will play together this week against Ireland ahead of our game so it will provide a real test for this group and we are looking forward to that challenge.”
