Warren Gatland's first match after stepping down as Wales boss this autumn will be against the team he has guided for over a decade.

Gatland, who leaves his post after the World Cup in Japan, has been appointed Barbarians coach for a fixture against Wales in Cardiff on November 30.

The first meeting between the sides since 2012 will also be Wayne Pivac's first outing as successor to Gatland.

Completing the double header on November 30 will be a first meeting between women's teams representing Wales and the Barbarians.
