Alcohol not directly related to Beale flight incident with woman

Yet another off field incident drama has hit the Wallabies, and again it is Kurtley Beale under the spotlight.


Reports indicate that the Beale was involved in a verbal slanging match with a member of the Wallabies team management, business manager Di Patston, during a flight to Brazil as the side prepare for this weekends clash in the final round of the Rugby Championship.

Patston has since left the tour following her incident with Beale.

It is understood that alcohol wasn’t a direct reason for the altercation, but Wallabies spokespeople have confirmed that the team were drinking the night before following the loss to the Springboks in Cape Town.

Wallabies coach Ewan McKenzie has said that the situation between Kurtley Beale and Di Patston was “complicated” and wouldn’t comment any further.

Beale is still available for selection ahead of this weekends matchup against Argentina.
