THE Barbarians will be without Rob Wainwright and Philippe Saint-Andre for today's annual match at Leicester.

The flanker Wainwright has been called into the Scotland A squad for the match against Ireland A, while the Frenchman is on duty for his club side, Montferrand.

Chris Sheasby, of Harlequins, will now wear the No 6 shirt and the Wakefield and England under-21 winger, Jon Sleightholme, replaces Saint Andre.

Sleightholme's inclusion means that four of the fastest wingers in the world will be on display, with Patrice Lagisquet being on the other wing for the Barbarians while Leicester field the Underwood brothers.
