Beale ruled out of Super Rugby




The Waratahs have revealed that Wallabies centre Kurtley Beale will not play Super Rugby for the Waratahs and will be out injured for up to six months.

Waratahs Centre, Beale received a better prognosis than expected after injuring his knee during Saturday’s round 12 Super Rugby match against the Bulls.

The 27-year-old picked up the injury within the first minute of the game after contesting a high ball.

Beale is likely to be sidelined for four to six months with scans revealing his patella tendon has torn from his patella. The result is the best possible prognosis given the tendon remains intact, requiring less invasive surgery, and that the injury is isolated with no other damage to the knee.

Beale’s length of time away from the game will be better understood following surgery on Monday at midday.

English club Wasps confirmed on Friday that they had signed Beale for next season so given the length of the injury he will not feature in Super Rugby again this year.

Beale will most likely miss all rugby this year and will only return in December which rules him out of the Rugby Championship and the Wallabies year end tour.
