Kurtley Beale is expected to return to the NSW Waratahs after reports in France stated he would turn down a contract extension with Racing 92.

33-year-old playmaker/fullback spent two seasons in France, moving there in 2020 as new Wallabies coach Dave Rennie sought to move on from the mercurial talent.

Beale was strongly inspired by his return to the Wallabies on the northern tour, and he expressed his desire for deeper engagement in the national team setup

Last season, Rennie was given the freedom to bring in as many overseas-based players as he needed, but he made it plain that he wanted some of those players to come home to play Super Rugby.

Wallabies coach Dave Rennie gives chance to Kurtley Beale

“It’s been good for me making the move to France to play for Racing 92. I enjoy the club and culture, but actually being removed from the Wallabies playing group and seeing them play again, I’ve realised how special it is,” Beale wrote.

“Watching what the Wallabies have done this year – beating the Springboks twice – helped reignite the flame for me. Seeing and admiring the growth under Dave, the rest of the coaching staff and Hoops, made me even more motivated at the prospect of being a Wallaby again.

“I could immediately sense the family feel within this Wallabies team. It’s a diverse squad, with a good mix of cultures, backgrounds and experiences and it doesn’t matter if you’re the youngest or the oldest (that’s me … how did that happen?!?) or how many caps you have, there’s a real brotherhood here.

“Combine that with Dave’s incredibly high levels of professionalism and you can sense that the group is working towards a new identity.

“The past two years has made me understand that nothing is a given and I really do miss it.”
