Ben Te'o

England outcast Ben Te'o is back in NRL for the first time since 2014

The midfielder’s career at Test level in union was shattered by the fallout from an alleged altercation in Italy with Mike Brown during a pre-World Cup training camp.

Despite being a regular under Eddie Jones and also featuring for the Lions in their drawn Test series versus the All Blacks in 2017, Te’o was cut loose by England for the finals and he spent some month at Toulon in the Top 14 before linking up with the Sunwolves ahead of the 2020 Super Rugby season. 

Te'o makes England squad

The group will prepare for tests against South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia later this year.

Hughes was born in Fiji, while Williams was born in Zimbabwe.

Centre Ben Te'o, a New Zealand-born former NRL rugby league player, was also included.
