England cruised to a second victory on their tour of South Africa when they beat the SA Barbarians North 31-57 in Potchefstroom on Tuesday.
The result was marred by a serious injury to Test hopeful Ugo Monye who appeared to knock himself out in a tackle and had to be stretchered from the field.
Early reports from the medics are that Monye is "okay" but groggy and was knocked out so he will have to go through concussion protocol.
England fullback Nick Abendanon scored a hat-trick of tries but the most impressive player for the visitors was replacement winger Jonny May who scored two tries in the short time he was on the field.
Carl Fearns was England's strong man and was frequently involved England's close range attack while England Test No.8 Ben Morgan helped his chances of playing on Saturday by scoring a try.
The Northern Barbarians started at a high pace and fullback JC Roos kicked the first points of the match through penalty in the sixth minute.
However it was not long before veteran flyhalf Charlie Hodgson answered to level the scores.
The Baabaas kept putting England under pressure but good defence from the visitors denied the home side until centre Joubert Engelbrecht scored a try in the corner after some hard work by the Baabaas captain JW Jonker.
England were jolted awake and it was not long before fullback Nick Abendanon went over in the corner after some good attacking play.
Hodgson converted to again level the scores at 10 points all.
The Baabaas defended well but they lacked discipline in their tackles and in the 23rd minute, England took the lead for the first time after eighth man Ben Morgan dove over for a converted try.
Play was interrupted for about six minutes with England winger Ugo Monye being carried of the field with a neck injury.
Winger Christian Wade almost dotted down for England in the 30th minute and there was a case for a penalty try but the TMO was unable to comment as an elbow charge happened before the in goal area and Wade was bumped out on the corner flag.
Abendanon then scored his second five pointer of the match after showcasing some fancy footwork. He got good ball on the front foot after the English forwards mauled 30 metres.
Just before half time, the ever present Abendanon scored his third try of the evening after a clever kick-through by England. Hodgson converted to give his side the half time lead of 31-10.
The break halted England's momentum and the Barbarians finally scored in the 53rd minute when scrumhalf Shaun Venter dummied and dived over for a converted try.
After England's flanker Jamie Gibson was yellow-carded for a late tackle, it left the visitors one man short and Venter went over for his second try, duly converted by Roos.
Even though England were a man down they scored again when replacement Jonny May went over in the corner and England found their game again.
May followed up with his second try which Hodgson converted and centre Anthony Allen added his name to the scorers as the wheels came off for the home side in the last ten minutes.
Winger Deon Scholtz scored a consolation try for the Baabaas near the end with referee Mark Lawrence awarding a penalty try to England on the final whistle.
