THE Bar­bar­ians will be coached by Wasps di­rec­tor of rugby Dai Young for their his­toric fix­ture against the British and Ir­ish Lions in Hong Kong on June 1.

Young will also be in charge of the Bar­bar­ians for their an­nual fix­ture against Eng­land at Twick­en­ham the pre­vi­ous week­end.

Derek Quin­nell, the ex-Wales in­ter­na­tional and cur­rent Bar­bar­ians com­mit­tee mem­ber, has been ap­pointed team man­ager for the two-match tour.

Young, who coached the Bar­bar­ians to wins over Eng­land and Wales in 2011, said: “I have been priv­i­leged to coach the Bar­bar­ians on three pre­vi­ous sum­mer tours – it’s al­ways an hon­our and one that I cher­ish.”
