ENGLAND international Ben Te’o is among a number of players that will be leaving Worcester Warriors at the end of the season.

Back rowers Alafoti Fa’osiliva, Carl Kirwan and Zac Xiourouppa will also depart along with prop Jack Cosgrove and academy aces Mason Tonks and Nick Rigby.

Te’o, 32, joined Warriors from Leinster three years ago and has won 20 international caps, two for the British and Irish Lions in New Zealand two years ago.

However the centre’s time at Sixways has been restricted due to his exertions with England and a series of injuries.

The marquee player has made 33 first-team appearances for Warriors, the most recent of those coming in last Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership win over Sale Sharks and is still set to play a big part in their first for survival this season.

He has also scored eight tries including one in the away victory at Bristol Bears last month.

Several French Top 14 and English Premiership clubs have been linked with a move to Te’o but his destination has yet to be confirmed.

Kirwan who made the move from London Welsh in 2015 has been blighted by injuries as he spent more than two years on the side-lines.

The 28-year-old who has made 28 outings returned from injury to force his way back into Alan Solomons’ plans but failed to secure a new contract.

Samoa international Faosiliva who arrived from Bath in 2016 played the last of his 45 games for Warriors in the European Challenge Cup victory over Pau in December when he damaged his knee scoring a try.

Xiourouppa had a spell on loan at Greene King IPA Championship club Cornish Pirates earlier in the season as he looked to reignite his fledgling career.

But the injury-hit academy product made his final Warriors appearance in the Premiership Rugby Cup match against Saracens in November when he injured his knee.

Cosgrove, another Warriors academy graduate, returned to Sixways in December from Bristol Bears on a short-term contract and made his made his third senior appearance for the club as a replacement in the European Challenge Cup match in Pau.

Director of rugby Alan Solomons said: “We would like to thank all who are leaving for their contribution to the club and wish them the very best for the future.”

Meanwhile, Warriors have also confirmed the departures of youngsters Tonks and Rigby.

Tonks, an England Sevens international, signed an academy contract in October having impressed for the Cavaliers in the early-season Premiership Rugby Shield matches.

Rigby joined the senior academy two years ago and made his first team debut as a replacement in the Anglo-Welsh Cup match against Sale Sharks in November 2017.

Academy manager Chim Gale added: “We would like to thank Mason and Nick for everything they have done during their time with the Academy and we wish them well for their future ventures.”
