Tindall named in Barbarians squad
Mike Tindall is in the Barbarians' 33-man squad for their upcoming fixtures against England, Ireland and Wales.
England centre Tindall, Wales fly-half Stephen Jones and Scotland scrum-half Rory Lawson are among the debutants behind the scrum for the invitational side, coached by former Italy and Japan boss John Kirwan, with Samoa pair Sailosi Tagicakibau and Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu also set to make their bows.
Up front Duncan Jones, John Afoa, John Beattie, Juan Manuel Leguizamon and Mick O'Driscoll will get their first taste of Baa-Baas rugby.
There are a plethora of southern hemisphere stars in the party, including former New Zealand full-back Mils Muliaina, South Africa's World Cup-winning captain John Smit and Leinster's Fijian back Isa Nacewa.
The Barbarians begin their short tour against England at Twickenham on May 27, before meeting Ireland at Gloucester's Kingsholm ground two days later.
The trip will conclude with a Millennium Stadium meeting against Six Nations champions Wales, where Shane Williams will make his final appearance before hanging up his boots.
