Jason Marshall and Sean Duke, following in the footsteps of former Canadian rugby captains Gareth Rees, Al Charron and Mark Wyatt, have been selected to play for the prestigious Barbarians against the Leicester Tigers on Tuesday.The Barbarians are an invitational side featuring players from across the globe and known for its attractive, free-flowing style of play.

Australian back Tom English was also called in.Were very grateful to the head coaches of Australia, Canada and Worcester for releasing these players to join us, Barbarians head coach John Kirwan, a former All Blacks star back, told the Tigers website. Its a great gesture on the part of Michael Cheika, Kieran Crowley and Dean Ryan, and we hope all four players enjoy their time with us.Slade and Parson both played in the Barbarians 40-36 loss to Australia on Saturday before nearly 50,000 fans at Twickenham.This is a great opportunity for Sean and Jason to play alongside some of the worlds best players and join the worlds most famous club, Rees, Canadas mens program manager, said in a Rugby Canada statement.These types of opportunities for Canadian players are increasingly rare since the onset of professional rugby. I am delighted for them both and that they will both don the famous jersey, he added.Rees and Crowley, a former All Black who now coaches Canada, both have ties to Kirwan.Charron played five times for the Barbarians from 1994 to 2000 while Rees saw action in three games in 1993 and 94. Other Canadian Barbarians include Glen Ennis (1992) Kevin Tkachuk (2006), David Lougheed (1995), Rod Snow (1996 and 2004) and Wyatt (1991).In the early 1960s, the Barbarians asked Douglas (Buzz) Moore to play against Canada while on tour in Britain. He declined, leading the Canadians to a 3-3 tie against the all-stars. The Barbarians made him an honorary Barbarian.Duke is a veteran of the Canadian sevens team, playing at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this summer and recent first leg of the IRB Sevens World Series in Australia. He played 80 minutes on the wing Sunday in a 28-23 Canada loss to Championship XV, an all-star side from English rugbys second tier.To be selected to play for the Barbarians is a huge honour for me and I am looking forward to experiencing their unique brand of rugby before returning to focus on Namibia, Duke said.The Barbarians are fresh off a 40-36 loss to the Australian Wallabies on Saturday at Twickenham in front of nearly 50,000 fans at the home of the RFU in London.Marshall, who did not play Sunday against the Championship XV, recently made it to the final of the ITM Cup Championship in New Zealand with Hawkes Bay.

PHOENIX -- A game that was uncomfortably close for the Phoenix Suns for nearly three quarters turned into a rout in a flash. The Suns pulled away with a 23-3 run and went on to beat the NBAs worst road team, the Orlando Magic, 109-93 on Wednesday night. "Even going into the fourth quarter we were only down by four," Magic rookie Victor Oladipo said. "They just kind of went on a crazy run." Goran Dragic scored 18 points to lead a balanced Phoenix offence. Gerald Green added 14 points, including three 3-pointers during the Suns outburst. Channing Frye and Markieff Morris added 12 apiece and Miles Plumlee had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Suns, back from a 2-1 eastern trip. Tobias Harris scored 23 points and Arron Afflalo had 20 for the Magic, who are 1-22 on the road since mid-December and an NBA-worst 4-32 away from home for the season. Orlando, already without Jameer Nelson (sore left knee), lost centre Nicola Vucevic when he drew two quick technical fouls and was ejected with 2:32 left in the first quarter. Vucevic had eight points in 9 1/2 minutes when he was tossed. The first technical came for arguing that he was fouled when Frye blocked his shot. The second came when he threw the ball at Frye after the Phoenix forward drew an offensive foul on him. "Hes a load down there," Frye said, "so I just tried to do what I could do, and he didnt like it." The win left the Suns 1 1/2 games behind Dallas and Memphis for the final two playoff spots in the Western Conference. Neither team led by more than seven before the Suns big run took off late in the third quarter. With the game tied at the break, coach Jeff Hornacek told his players it was time to look like a team that belonged in the post-season. "I told them to just get after it and go take the team if you want to be a playoff team," he said, "and thats what they did." Marcus Morriss hit a pair of 3s as Phoenix outscored the Magic 8-1 to end the third quarter after Orlando had taken its first lead of the second half, 73-72 on Andrew Nicholsons inside basket with 1:57 left in the period.dddddddddddd The Magic still led, 75-74, when Harris made two free throws 20 seconds later. Morris made a 3, Dragic scored on layup off a Magic turnover, then Morris made another 3, with 2.9 seconds left in quarter. Green stretched the run to 14-1 with two 3s to open the fourth quarter, then added another moments later. By the time Markieff Morris made a 15-footer, the Suns were up 97-78 with 7:45 left. Phoenix led by as many as 21 after that. Green had struggled with his shot before he hit those three big ones. "I just had to stay with it," he said. "I was going to get shots up and I knew I was going to be able to get open and try to make plays." The Magic, losers at Golden State on Tuesday night, scored the first six points of the game, and that was the biggest lead of the half for either team. The score was tied at 25 after one and at 52 at the break. Frye scored the first five in a 7-0 spurt to start the second half to put Phoenix up 59-52 on P.J. Tuckers fast-break layup. Miles Plumlees dunk on a feed from Dragic had Phoenix up 65-58 with 6:18 left in the third. However, Afflalos four-point play capped a 9-2 run that tied it at 67 with 3:34 remaining in the period. "They came out and really pushed it at us," Orlando coach Jacque Vaugn said. "We helped them a little bit by tying to make it complicated instead of the simple play. We will continue to stress that. A lot of times the simple play is good enough. " NOTES: Orlandos lone road win since Dec. 16 was at Philadelphia on Feb. 26. ... Only five of the Suns remaining 14 games are at home. ... The game was Orlandos second stop on a four-game road trip. ... Orlando joined Milwaukee and Philadelphia as 50-game losers. ' ' '
