"We have decided to release Ben as we felt, with the strength in depth of our backs, there was limited opportunity for first-team rugby," director of rugby Rob Andrew said. "With Epi Taione moving back to the wing and Matthew Tait joining the squad, as well as the likes of Tom May and Michael Stephenson being available, we feel we are well covered. At full-back we have Matthew Burke, Dave Walder and Joe Shaw who can all play there, so Ben's chances were realistically going to be limited."

Meanwhile, the RFU have denied that Australia will play New Zealand at Twickenham in December."The only approach the RFU has received was for Australia and the New Zealand Barbarians to play a fixture at Twickenham but this was declined due to the fixture schedule," a spokesman said.
