Beale in court for assault

2012-07-05 09:03

Sydney - Wallabies flyhalf Kurtley Beale will face a Brisbane court for allegedly hitting a bouncer at the Victory Hotel the morning before the first Australia-Wales Test.

Police said they have issued a 23-year-old Victorian man with a notice to appear on one count of common assault and he will appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on July 24.

Beale and his team-mate Quade Cooper were refused entry at Victory Hotel in the early hours on June 8.

The Australian Rugby Union originally put on hold its disciplinary process surrounding Beale until the police matter was resolved meaning Beale remained available for Super Rugby and the Wallabies.

The ARU is yet to comment on Beale's court date being set. No police action has been taken against Cooper.

    Does this mean he won't feature against the Lions on Saturday? If he plays badly, the Lions might just be in with a chance. This will be a record for the Lions, 3 wins in one season. Amazing!

    @ Charles, I see your nom de plume is very fitting. 1. Beale was injured this last weekend and will not be touring with the Rebels to RSA. 2. I think this article is a case that you can take some of the ppl out of the bush, but you can not take the bush out of some people.
