Justin Tipuric statement: Wales vs Barbarians

I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to play for the Barbarians against Wales. It’s a shame the game falls on the same weekend as Ospreys first game in London against the Sharks, which is important to the club and a game I was really looking forward to. After discussing it with Toby and the team, I’m incredibly grateful that the Ospreys are supportive of my decision and have allowed me to play for the Barbarians.

It was a difficult decision to make, but this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to face my home nation and play against some of my best mates.
