Koroibete, Radradra for World XV squad

Fiji-born Wallabies winger Marika Koroibete and Flying Fijians centre Semi Radradra will be part of a star-studded World XV to take on the Barbarians in May this year.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen will guide the World XV which will also include Wallaby Nick Phipps and All Black Ngani Laumape.

The Barbarians will be coached by Eddie Jones, who has committed to the fixture despite re-joining Australia.

BBC reports that Koroibete was one of the form wingers in the world in 2022.

Jones’ Barbarians look set to field Welsh great Alun Wyn Jones, who has been approached to make his debut for the invitational side.

The World XV will face the Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday, 28 May.
