The New Zealand Barbarians are recognised affiliates under the auspice of New Zealand Tag Football Inc. They were created prior to the 2007 Tag World Cup due to the NZTFI not having the financial resources to select players from throughout New Zealand to come together for training camps before international test matches or world cups. All New Zealand Barbarian players are selected from the NZTFI sanctioned domestic competitions outside the greater Auckland region and mostly from Wellington and Christchurch. Players of New Zealand descent who play in Australia or anywhere where there is ITF sanctioned tag competitions are also eligible for selection if they are originally from these provinces. Players need to be citizens of New Zealand. The New Zealand Barbarians compete in the Senior and Junior Oceania Cups and the ITF Tag World Cup events respectively.
