England were comfortably beaten by the 14-man Barbarians in their final game before touring Australia this summer.
Marcus Smith was a rare bright note for the hosts as he kicked an early penalty before the visitors took control.
A penalty try was followed by a Charles Ollivon score and a gift for Damian Penaud in the first half before Will Skelton was dismissed for the Baa Baas.
Penaud scored again after the break, as did Baptiste Couilloud, Louis Carbonel, Max Spring and Antoine Hastoy.
