Brothers Josua Tuisova and Filipo Nakosi have accepted invitations to play for the Barbarians in the Quilter Cup in June.
The brothers are among two other players from French Top 14 Club Toulon, Malakai Fekitoa and Rhys Webb.
The game is part of a historic double-header with the Barbarians’ women’s side taking on the Red Roses for the first time.
Tuisova made a devastating display in 2018 when he and Malakai Fekitoa helped the famous invitation side to a record 63-45 win as well as providing try assist for Chris Ashton.
He made 214 metres, seven clean breaks, beat eight defenders and offloaded four times.
The Barbarians will take on England on June 3rd at Twickenham Stadium.
