Kurtley Beale Could Be Set For A Shock Wasps Exit

Kurtley Beale’s stay in Coventry could be shorter than originally expected.

The utility back signed a two-year deal with Wasps during the summer, making him one of the highest paid rugby players in the world.

It’s now been revealed however that Wallabies coach Michael Cheika will soon start preparing a bid to bring the former NSW Waratahs star back home to Australia.

Beale is said to have a break clause after one year, and Cheika will use that to try and lure him back to Super Rugby.

With the 2019 World Cup in Japan fast approaching, Cheika said he will “definitely” put his case to Beale before the Premiership campaign ends in May.

“I spoke to him when we were on tour and he told how he was going over there and kept me up to date with where he’s at,” Cheika told AAP.

“Obviously I’m keen for him to come back, there’s no doubt about that.

“I’m sure that time will come around soon enough, when it’s time to start putting our proposal to him and start speaking about coming back.

“He’s one of our top players and we’re very, very keen for him to be playing in Australia – even though he’s still eligible to play for the Wallabies from overseas.”
