Kurtley Beale

Wallabies star arrested over alleged sexual assault

The 28-year-old woman was allegedly assaulted at a licensed venue in Bondi on Saturday, 17 December.

ABC reports the Wallabies player was arrested in Kingsford about 2.30pm yesterday after a vehicle he was travelling in was stopped on Rainbow Street.

The 34-year-old has been taken to Waverley Police Station where he is currently being questioned and is expected to be charged.

Beale has played most of his career with the NSW Waratahs but also had a short spell at Melbourne Rebels.

He joined French team Racing 92 on a two-year deal in 2020.

Returning star Beale to play fullback at Tahs

Beale is back in Australia for a fourth stint at the Waratahs in a major boost to his Wallabies chances, after previously being subject to rules capping the number of players able to be selected from international clubs.

He played inside centre, fullback and off the bench in his most recent season with French Top 14 outfit Racing 92 and has a wealth of experience as a five-eighth, including for the Wallabies.

Kurtley Beale departs Waratahs with immediate effect

It was announced in May that Beale would not be returning to Daceyville in 2021 and following the COVID-19 shutdown it’s been agreed that he take up that opportunity with immediate effect.

In his eleventh season for his home state, Beale has been an icon of the organisation’s famous sky-blue jersey – equalling Benn Robinson’s all-time appearance record (148) in his final outing as a Waratah.

Kurtley Beale has landed a two-year deal in France

The 31-year-old Australian international is currently with the Waratahs, whom he joined after a stint in 2016/17 with Wasps, the English Premiership side.

The 92-cap Wallaby, who has played in three World Cups, offers backline versatility and a nose for scoring. His arrival in Paris will offset the club’s loss of Brice Dulin, who is bound for La Rochelle ar the end of the currently suspended season. 

Hope, pride and Wallabies duels to drive Waratahs in run home: Beale

Those will be will be the driving forces behind the Waratahs in their last three games, according to Kurtley Beale, despite the fact NSW will need a miracle to make the finals.

The Waratahs crashing to an eighth loss for the season on Saturday night against the Jaguares left them sitting in 12th on the ladder, eight points behind the Brumbies and seven behind the Rebels, and four points outside the top eight.

Best yet to come for Wallabies attack: Beale

Beale was arguably the Wallabies' most dangerous player with ball in hand on Saturday, showing his class with a gliding run across field to set up the Israel Folau try which was eventually disallowed.

His combination with Bernard Foley made the Wallabies attack look far more potent than the Irish charge but Beale said the offensive output will only increase from here.

"I think across the park, combinations are key - especially when there is a short turnaround," he said.

Beale ruled out of Brisbane Tens

Beale was ruled out of the Brisbane Tens with an elbow injury, less than a day after being named in the Waratahs squad for the tournament.

The 29-year-old is one of the tournament's promotional ambassadors, suffered the injury in training last week and was unable to shake it off in time.

Beale will still travel with the team and fulfil his ambassadorial role but his absence on the field is a blow to the tournament, with many teams already reluctant to bring their top-line stars.

Hayman said it was disappointing to see a draw card like Beale pull out.

Beale sheds blood, but not belief, after Bledisloe defeat

Beale, who was one of the Wallabies’ best in the enthralling encounter, was visibly emotional after the match, speaking about the result.

“That one really hurts, heartbreaking stuff, huge effort from the lads, couldn't ask anything more,” he said.

“A couple of handling errors cost us in the end and that was just a true Test match.

“I think both teams played to the very end and it's just unfortunate that we were put in that position in the end and that one really just cuts the heart a bit.

Wallabies need to strike attacking balance

Kurtley Beale and Israel Folau will be reunited on Saturday night, and it didn’t take much for the fullback to show exactly why Beale’s return is so anticipated by Australia.

One of Australia’s most prolific Test finishers can’t wait to have his Waratahs teammate back,  just for the flow-on of confidence the utility has in a side.

“You grow that extra leg when you know you have him beside you. He brings a lot more confidence to your game and it’s exciting,” Folau said.

“Guys like KB they don’t come around too often.

Wallabies star Kurtley Beale to return to Australia

The former Waratahs centre is currently the highest earning player in England after signing a A$1.5 million (NZ$1.63m) one-year deal, with the option of a second season, last May.

Beale had to wait until December to make his debut for Wasps after suffering a serious knee injury during a Super Rugby clash just hours after signing for the English giants.

He's been in fine form since finally making it onto the field, helping Wasps to the top of the Aviva Premiership table with two tries in last week's win over Bath.
