The game, essentially an All Blacks trial, will be played in front of no fans.
The All Blacks coach Ian Foster will name his first squad of the year following the game on Sunday.
Barrett will run the backline for the North, which includes Damian McKenzie at fullback, and Sevu Reece and young Blues star Caleb Clarke on the wings.
Curiously, though it probably doesn't matter, TJ Perenara will start at halfback with Aaron Smith on the bench.
The in-form Jordie Barrett is at fullback for the South, with exciting Crusaders outside back Will Jordan on the wing.
