Wallabies call Beale over for Ireland clash

Wallabies call Beale over for Ireland clash

Kurtley Beale will join the Australia squad on Sunday ahead of next week’s Test match against Ireland.

The controversial full-back has been added to the Wallabies’ autumn squad, along with back-row forward Jake Schatz, who replaces an injured Scott Higginbotham.

The Australian Rugby Union said both players will link up with the squad in Dublin on Sunday. Australia face France in Paris the previous evening.

Beale was found guilty at an Australian Rugby Union code of conduct hearing last month of sending a lewd text message to former Wallabies team manager Di Patston.

He was fined almost €31,000, but found not guilty of sending a second more offensive message.

After the Ireland game, Australia conclude their tour by facing England at Twickenham on November 29.
