2:38 pm on 15 February 2012

The All Black legend John Kirwan has been appointed coach of a star-studded Barbarians rugby team to play England, Ireland and Wales in May and June.

Kirwan, who has coached Italy and Japan, says it was his dream as a player to be a Barbarian, and the invitation to coach them is an honour he'll remember forever.

The Barbarians secretary Alan Evans has identified John Rococoko as one New Zealander who'll be involved in the tour.
