Beale leaving Melbourne Rebels

3:07 pm on 13 July 2013

Kurtley Beale has followed his Wallabies teammate James O'Connor out the door at the Melbourne Rebels with the Super Rugby club announcing he's no longer wanted.

The club has ended negotiations to keep the talented back in Melbourne, paving the way for him to sign with the NSW Waratahs.

Beale missed their final Super Rugby round win over the Highlanders last night, staying in Sydney as he continues his treatment for alcohol issues.

Beale spent two seasons with the Rebels.
