Ben Te’o joins Sunwolves for their last season in Super Rugby


England’s Ben Te’o will feature for the Sunwolves in what will be their final season in Super Rugby, the Japanese team said on Tuesday.

Centre Te’o, who agreed to a short-term deal with French club Toulon in August, will be joined at the Tokyo-based team by Tonga’s Onehunga Kaufusi and Australia’s Jake Schatz, the Sunwolves said.

Former NRL star Te’o, 32, was left out of Eddie Jones’ England squad for the Rugby World Cup in Japan after being excluded from the final week of a training camp due to an altercation with a teammate.

The Sunwolves, under new boss Naoya Okubo, also welcome back Georgian hooker Jaba Bregvadze and will add more names to the squad once contract negotiations have been completed, they said.
