In their last game before heading to Australia, England was comfortably defeated by the 14-man Barbarians.

Marcus Smith was a shining light for the hosts. He kicked an early penalty, before the visitors took control.

The penalty attempt was followed by a Charles Ollivon score, and Damian Penaud's gift in the first period. Will Skelton was later dismissed for the Baa Baas.

Penaud scored again following the break, along with Baptiste Couilloud (Louis Carbonel), Max Spring, and Antoine Hastoy.
