Barbarians coach John Kirwan has named Shane Williams in his starting line-up for their clash with Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

The Welsh Test veteran, who has had a series of dramatic 'last games', will make his final appearance as a professional player after bowing out of Test rugby against Australia in Cardiff last December.

He is joined by two other Welsh internationals - Richie Rees and Duncan Jones in the black and white shirt.

World Cup-winning former Springbok captain John Smit again leads the Barbarians but starts at prop while former Cardiff Blues centre Casey Laulala will partner England's Mike Tindall in midfield.

Isa Nacewa, who joined the squad this week, teams up with Williams and All Blacks centurion Mils Muliaina in the back three.

The Barbarians lost 57-26 to England at Twickenham last weekend, but they recovered to beat Ireland by a point in Gloucester in midweek and go to the Millennium Stadium after defeating Wales in last year's corresponding fixture.

Barbarians: 15 Mils Muliana, 14 Isa Nacewa, 13 Mike Tindall, 12 Casey Laulala, 11 Shane Williams, 10 Stephen Donald, 9 Richie Rees, 8 Mamuka Gorgodze, 7 Johnnie Beattie, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Mark Chisholm, 4 Mick O'Driscoll, 3 John Smit (capt), 2 Benoit August, 1 Duncan Jones.
Replacements: 16 Aled de Malmanche, 17 Neemia Tialata, 18 Anton Van Zyl, 19 Akapusi Qera, 20 Rory Lawson, 21 Sailosi Tagicakibau, 22 Cedric Heymans.
