Kurtley Beale’s Time At Wasps May Be Short-Lived
Kurtley Beale’s time at Wasps may be short-lived after Fox Sports this morning claimed that the utility back has a clause in his contract allowing him return to Australia after just one season in England.
Beale, who’s currently sidelined with a serious knee injury, signed one of the most lucrative contracts in Premiership history this summer, believed to be worth in excess of £700,000 per year. He joins a host of high-profile signings this year by Wasps including a returning Danny Cipriani and Springbok maestro Willie Le Roux.
Beale himself commented on a possible swift return to Australia, and his comments will certainly not go down well with Wasps fans.
I definitely haven’t closed the book on Australian rugby.
I still think that I’ve got a lot to give to the game in Australia. I really mean that and I really want to leave on a good mark’.
Enjoy Beale while you can Wasps fans… he might not be around for long.
