Pienaar and Tuohy to represent the Barbarians

Ulster's Ruan Pienaar and Dan Tuohy have both been named in the Barbarians squad to face Fiji at the Kingspan Stadium next month.

They are the fourth and fifth players in Robbie Deans and Will Greenwood's squad, joining Australians Taqele Naiyaravoro and Will Skelton, and former All Black Andy Ellis.

Pienaar will be making his fourth appearance for the Barbarians having featured for them on three previous occasions, including last year's 22-21 win over Ireland at Thomond Park, while Tuohy will be making his representative debut for the Baa-Baas, although he has faced them three times for Ireland.

"I am delighted to announce that Ruan and Dan have been selected to join the Barbarians squad for this historic fixture," Ulster's Director of Rugby Les Kiss said at the Kingspan Stadium today.

"It is a great personal honour for them, and the fact that they will run out for the Barbarians here at Kingspan Stadium wearing their Ulster socks will make it an even more memorable occasion.

"The Barbarians and Fiji are two sides who are renowned for playing skilful and entertaining rugby so it is set up to be a fantastic night here in Belfast.”

The last time the Barbarians and Fiji met, Ulster full-back Charles Piutau was among the try scorers for the Baa-Baas in a 43-19 win at Twickenham in November 2013.

Former Ulster winger Timoci Nagusa is expected to be named in the Fiji squad for the game, as is former Crusaders ace Nemani Nadolo, now of Montpellier.
