Twickenham has been confirmed as the venue to host South Africa's end-of-year fixture against Barbarians. This was confirmed by the South African Rugby Union (SARU) today, with the fixture set to bring down the curtain on the Springboks' tour to the United Kingdom and Ireland, which features games against all four home nations. The clash against the Baa-Baas, the seventh meeting between the two sides dating back to 1952, will take place on December 4 and follow on from matches against Ireland, Wales Scotland and England - all being played in November. "The Barbarians fixture has become the grand finale of the European autumn Internationals 2010 series and we're delighted to be taking part once again," SARU manager of national teams, Andy Marinos, said. "The fixture has a character all of its own and is an opportunity for the players to demonstrate their skills against the very best international players but with different pressures to that of the Test arena. "The Barbarians routinely produce an outstanding combination as they showed when a team featuring several Springboks beat the All Blacks last season. Recent well-sourced rumours that Wood has made a couple of secret trips to Sydney in the last few months would suggest that the RFL are keen to give it a go. The lack of leaks from that side of the operation could be interpreted as encouraging evidence that the famously discreet Bennett, who would surely have been England's first-choice old head, has been tempted to complete the full set of major international league teams. "There'll also be plenty of incentive for our players following our last game against them in 2007." The world champions were beaten 22-5 by the Barbarians in their last meeting, also at Twickenham, then to level the head-to-head scores between the two sides at 3-3. Barbarians' president Micky Steele-Bodger said: "As the years go by, our long-established fixtures against the the major powers of the southern hemisphere are, if anything, becoming more and more popular. "Success breeds success, not necessarily in terms of match results but in providing an attractive environment where true followers are almost guaranteed an entertaining afternoon of top-class sport. We look forward to another such occasion next December." That is not to say they would be bad appointments. McNamara has long been rated a coach of great potential by both Smith, who moved quickly to appoint him as an assistant and therefore potential successor when he took on the England job in 2007, and by his elder brother Brian, formerly of Bradford and Hull, and now with the Sydney Roosters. McDermott also worked alongside Smith at Leeds before taking the Harlequins job four years ago, and made a big impression on the Rhinos players – including Jamie Peacock, the England captain. He has since made an immense contribution to rugby league development in London and the south, despite the current stick he is receiving from the Quins supporters whose expectations have been distorted by years of high-profile overseas signings that the club could not afford.
