The Barbarians return to Limerick to complete this year's world tour by taking on Tonga at Thomond Park on Friday, November 10th. 
 
The famous invitation side are back at the iconic Limerick venue for the first time since they beat Ireland 22-21 there in the summer of 2015.
 
And it will be the Baa-baas' first meeting with Tonga – newly qualified as England’s World Cup rivals at Rugby World Cup in 2019 after beating Samoa in this summer’s Pacific Nations Cup.

A number of Tonga internationals have represented the club including Premiership great Epi Taione and France-based prop Sona Taumalolo, the latter playing in the 39-29 victory over England in 2014.
 
Bristol centre Siale Piutau captained Tonga this summer when a 30-26 win against Samoa ultimately secured their place in Pool C of the 2019 World Cup. They are coached by Toutai Kefu, the former Australia No.8 who appeared for the Barbarians against England in 2006.
