TRANSFER | England centre Ben Te’o closes in on next club

Ben Te’o is set to return to rugby league after his Super Rugby stint with the Sunwolves ended early.

The powerhouse is to be signed by the Broncos after the club created room to move in their salary cap due to the departure of Andrew McCullough to the Knights.

According to multiple reports, the former Broncos back-rower and South Sydney premiership star’s signing is imminent.

The 33-year-old had been offered a move back to the Gallagher Premiership with Bath, but is looking to settle down in Australia as he begins to wind down his career.
