The former Wallabies winger Lote Tuqiri is back in international rugby league, having been called into Australia's Four Nations squad to replace the injured Jarryd Hayne.

Tuqiri played five Tests for the Kangaroos between 2001-02, before switching to rugby union and playing for the Wallabies for seven years.

The Kangaroos opening four nations match is against Papua New Guinea in Sydney on Sunday.
