BREAKING: England international makes shock move to Australia

The Melbourne Rebels have achieved another significant signing, securing the services of one-Test England halfback Jack Maunder, as they continue their trend of making substantial acquisitions this year.

According to The Roar, the 26-year-old player, who received international recognition under the guidance of Eddie Jones in 2017 and was also included in the English setup in 2020, is on the verge of finalising a one-year contract with the Rebels.

The English Premiership has been thrown into disarray due to the recent dramatic collapses of teams like Wasps, Worcester, and London Irish.

As a result, there is now a surplus of players available in the market, with limited opportunities for them to find new clubs.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Joseph has signed a one year deal with Biarritz.
