The Wallabies will face the Barbarians at Twickenham following this year's Rugby World Cup, the Australian Rugby Union has announced.

The Barbarians, who have beaten New Zealand and the Springboks in the past two years, will be out to secure a hat-trick of southern hemisphere scalps when they face Australia on November 26.

"Our two most recent games have been great spectacles and the victories over the All Blacks and Springboks have captured everyone's imagination," Barbarians president Micky Steele-Bodger said.

"Our fixture against Australia in November provides us with a unique opportunity to complete an historic hat-trick, so once again we will be inviting world-class stars to make up our team."

The two teams have met 10 times previously, with the Wallabies winning seven of them.
