All Blacks prop Crockett to skipper Barbarians against Argentina at Twickenham

New Zealand prop Wyatt Crockett will captain the Barbarians in Saturday's Killik Cup clash against Argentina at Twickenham.

Crockett leads a side that features eight South African internationals, including current Springboks fly-half Handre Pollard and former Saracens hooker Schalk Brits.

There is a place for Argentina's Juan Manuel Leguizamon, who lines up in the back-row with Siya Kolisi and Pieter-Steph Du Toit against his fellow countrymen.

Chiefs full back Jack Debreczeni is the Baa-baas' traditional uncapped player, with the invitational team facing Argentina for just a third time in their 128-year history.
