DRAGONS hooker Richard Hibbard will start for the Barbarians against England on Sunday with teammate Rhodri Williams among the replacements.

The duo have been selected for the end of season clash at Twickenham (kick-off 3.30pm) after strong first seasons at Rodney Parade.

Hibbard starts in between Joe Marler and John Afoa in the front row while Williams will come on for fellow Wales international Rhys Webb.

Campaign Series:

The game is part of a double-header with Wales backs Elinor Snowsill and Jasmine Joyce, at fly-half and wing respectively, lining up for the Baa-Baas Women against the English (kick-off 12.45pm).

It will be Hibbard's third appearance for the Barbarians after facing England and Ulster in the summer of 2017.

The former Wales and Lions hooker had an impressive first campaign at the Dragons after his move from Gloucester, making 23 appearances and deputising as captain for Cory Hill.

Williams was a member of the squad that upset the English 63-45 in last year's clash at Twickenham before he headed to the Dragons from Bristol.

The scrum-half was nominated for coaches' player of the year for his efforts in 2018/19 after featuring in all but two European Challenge Cup fixtures.
