    Beale in court for assault

    2012-07-24 07:52

    Sydney - Wallabies fullback Kurtley Beale was granted bail to attend mediation after appearing in court on Tuesday charged with common assault.

    The Melbourne Rebels star was allegedly involved in an altercation with a security guard after he and Wallabies team-mate Quade Cooper were refused entry to a pub ahead of Australia's first Test with Wales last month.

    During a brief mention of the matter in the Brisbane Magistrates Court, Beale's lawyer Angelo Venardos told the judge his client and the alleged victim were attempting to resolve the matter out of court.

    The hearing was adjourned for eight weeks to allow this to happen.

    While Beale missed the first two Tests against Wales through injury, he was recalled for the third, and the Australian Rugby Union said Tuesday it had yet to start disciplinary proceedings against him over the alleged assault.

    "As stated previously an ARU disciplinary review procedure will not begin until the court process has been completed," the governing body said.

    "No further comment will be made at this time."
