Leinster centre Ben Te'o has received his first call up to the England rugby team.

The New Zealand-born player, who joins Worcester from Leinster next season, is among four uncapped players named by head coach Eddie Jones in the squad for the forthcoming tour of Australia.

Te'o qualifies for England as his mother was born and raised there, and is now being considered for England due to the fact that he is moving to the English Premiership next season.

The English RFU's current stance prevents players based outside England to be called up.
