Kurtley Beale arrested for alleged sexual assault

Rugby union star Kurtley Beale was charged with alleged sexual assault at a Bondi hotel late last year.

The Wallabies back was arrested just before 2.30pm on Friday following a vehicle stop in Kingsford following training with the NSW Waratahs.

The 33-year-old was taken to Waverley Police Station where he was charged with sexually touching another person without consent, inciting another person to have sexual contact without consent and having sexual intercourse without consent.

He will spend Friday night behind bars after being denied bail to appear at Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.

The charges come after a 28-year-old woman told Tweed/Byron Bay Police that she was allegedly sexually assaulted at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi Beach on December 17, 2022.

Detectives from the Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command took control of the matter and launched an investigation under Strike Force Titheradge.

Beale, who has played 95 Tests for Australia after making his Wallabies debut in 2009, recently returned to the Waratahs after a stint in French rugby. He became a father in October last year and just last week attended a Wallabies camp with intentions of joining the squad for this year’s Rugby World Cup.

Senior sources at Rugby Australia, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Friday night he would resign if charges were brought.

Rugby Australia, along with the NSW Waratahs and the Rugby Union Players Association (RUPA), issued a statement on Friday afternoon saying they were “aware of the situation with Kurtley Beale”.
