Beale to play SuperRugby for Waratahs until 2017

Kurtley Beale is understood to have signed with Wasps

Waratahs and Wallabies back Kurtley Beale has re-signed with the NSW Waratahs
and Australian Rugby Union on a two year contract that will keep him playing
Super Rugby in Sydney until the end of 2017.

Waratahs Head Coach Daryl Gibson said Beale’s commitment to the side
for two more seasons would continue his significant contribution to the legacy
of the club.

“Kurtley has played some of his best football for the Waratahs, and I
am confident we will see his game continue to progress in the seasons to come,”
Gibson said.

“His role in the team is evolving, and we are seeing his development
as a player on and off the field grow and become more significant.

“Kurtley’s experience as an international rugby player will provide
great guidance to our incoming group of young players, and it will be vital
to have someone of his calibre amongst them in training and on the field.”

Beale, who has earned 115 Super Rugby caps in his career, 101 of which have
been with the NSW Waratahs, since his debut with his home state in 2007 against
the Lions in Johannesburg.

Fittingly, he earned his 100th NSW cap against the same team in Round 16 of
the 2015 Super Rugby competition.

After joining the Melbourne Rebels in 2012, Beale returned to the Waratahs
in 2014 and enjoyed immediate success as the side earned its first Super Rugby
title in the same year.

His season in 2015 was remarkable, notching several club records in the 15
matches he played before injury ended his season, including becoming the ninth
most NSW Caps in club history, the fourth most points (423), seventh most Super
Rugby tries (21), and the fifth highest number of penalty goals kicked (63).
