Kwagga Smith is one of four South Africans starting for the Barbarians against the All Blacks this weekend.
Kwagga Smith, who has been in superb form for the Lions all season, starts in the loose trio alongside fellow compatriots Harold Vorster, Adriaan Strauss and Jacques van Rooyen.
On the bench, hooker Akker van der Merwe, flank Willie Britz, loose forward Ruan Ackermann and flyhalf Robert du Preez should get a run in the second half. South African-born prop Ruan Smith is also in the mix.
In other exciting selections, there are five All Blacks and one Wallaby in the starting XV in what should be an exciting match.
