Winger Hosea Gear emerged as the match-winner, running in two late tries to settle an entertaining affair.

A makeshift England side included only three players to have played at senior Test level, while the Barbarians boasted a side that included more than 700 international caps.

However, the home side began well, with Dave Ewers and Charlie Sharples looking to make a name for themselves in an England shirt.

Both men went over in the first half to give the home side an 18-14 lead at the interval.

However, the Barbarians, led by Argentina’s Juan Manuel Leguizamon, hit back after the interval with Mamuka Gorgodze scoring a try six minutes into the second half.

Brock James added the extras as well as a penalty goal soon after, but England responded to keep their hopes of victory alive.

Henry Slade touched down and kicked two penalties, but Gear’s brace secured victory for the Barbarians.

A full-strength England get down to business against New Zealand in the first game of their tour in Auckland on Saturday.
