Ben Te’o has won 18 international appearances for England

Former England and British and Irish Lions center Ben Te’o have returned to the NRL by signing Brisbane Broncos.

The 33-year-old was booked 18 times from England and played twice in the Lions’ Test team on the 2017 New Zealand tour.

Te’o had a spell with Leinster and Worcester before leaving English rugby to sign for the French club Toulon after he had not been part of the national team for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

It became available after its Japan-based Super Rugby franchise, the Sunwolves, was unable to continue playing in the 2020 competition.

Te’o, who was training alone during the shutdown of COVID-19, said he would be ready to take the field from the fifth round against the Sea Eagles if necessary.

“It’s crazy how things go, but I’m just excited to be back playing rugby league and playing with the guys and working hard,” said Te’o.

“Brisbane is home for me and the Broncos have always followed me and I feel welcome here – this is the perfect place for me to play.

“The club has had an open seat and needs some guys and I’m ready to come and help out and play my role for the Broncos.”

Te’o played 75 games for the Broncos between 2009 and 2012 and won a premiership with Rabbitoh in 2014 before moving on to 15-man rugby.
