Now he is set to make his Barbarians' debut when their summer tour pitches up in Gloucester in May. Thomas said, "It has always been my ambition to play for the Baa-Baas and I had no hesitation in accepting the invitation. It promises to be a great experience and I'm looking forward to joining up with the big names from around the world."
The Welshman will be in good company with the likes of fellow 2003 Lion Josh Lewsey, Wallaby fly-half Stephen Larkham and the Scarlets' All Black Regan King providing real firepower behind the scrum.
They will be joined by Worcester's Springbok full-back Thinus Delport as the Baa-Baas set out to live up to their commitment to attacking rugby.
