    Israel Folau's making a return to international rugby - after being named in the Tongan squad for July's Pacific Nations Cup


    The former Wallabies fullback last played an international in 2018 before a controversial homophobic social media post in early 2019 ended his career.

    With World Rugby relaxing its rules around playing for a second country as of this year, he's now eligible for the Ikale Tahi .

    Former All Blacks Malakai Fekitoa, Charles Piutau and Augustine Pulu have also been included in a Tongan squad for the first time.
