Beale could still be called up for Wallabies tour

Wallabies back Kurtley Beale could still feature for Australia on their end of year tour or Europe according to assistant coach Nathan Grey .

Beale was found guilty of sending an offensive picture message to a female Australian Rugby Union staff member by a disciplinary tribunal last week and was fined $AU 45,000.

While the utility back was found guilty he was not suspended and is eligible to play for Australia.

Newly appointed Wallabies coach Michael Cheika left Australia before the Beale verdict came in and he has chosen to leave the backliner at home in Australia for the timebeing.

Australia are currently in London preparing to play a non-cap international against the Barbarians at Twickenham on Saturday and Beale has resumed training in cade there are injuries which could open the door for his call up.

Wallabies assistant coach Grey said that as Beale missed the last couple of Australian Test matches he needs focus on his fitness.

“Kurtley at the moment is back at home and he is training,” Grey told the BBC.

“He hasn’t played for a long period of time so we know he is working hard and trying to get up to speed in terms of his physical condition, and once he has done that he is definitely going to be considered for selection,” Grey added.
