This will be only the second meeting of the two teams. The previous encounter came ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup and was the first-ever rugby match to be played at London’s Olympic Stadium. The Baa Baas won 27-24 that day.

The Barbarians look forward to welcoming back fans to the Home of England Rugby for what always promises to be an electric game of rugby and culminate the Autumn Internationals. So, expect lots of skills on show, a thrilling day of rugby and guaranteed entertainment with friends and family, alongside the hospitality we have on offer. Tickets are selling fast.

Barbarian F.C. are set to face Samoa this autumn as the two sides meet at Twickenham for the Killik Cup on Saturday 27 November (kick-off 2.30pm). Tickets for the match are available from Thursday 15 April at 10.00am.

It will be just the second time the teams have met, the first being at London’s Olympic Park ahead of Rugby World Cup 2015, which marked the first-ever rugby match at the venue.

The last edition of the Killik Cup took place in 2019, when Fiji edged a narrow 31-33 victory over the famous Black and White with five tries apiece in a thrilling spectacle in front of a 50,000-strong crowd. Rugby legends including Rory Best, Tendai “The Beast” Mtawarira, Mathieu Bastareaud and Makazole Mapimpi turned out in style for the international side.

John Spencer, President of Barbarian F.C. said: “We are very happy to announce our 2021 Killik Cup fixture this November and look forward to welcoming Samoa to Twickenham for what will no doubt be a wonderful match.”

Spencer added: “With our long history of playing with our trademark style of flair, courage, spirit and passion, the Barbarians love lining up against exciting international sides like Samoa and we know this fixture will be an unforgettable rugby experience.

“The Barbarians are also looking forward to welcoming back fans back to HQ for the 2021 Killik Cup, for what always promises to be an electric and unmissable game of international rugby.”
