    What bullshit!!!

    Just watched Rugby HQ reaction. A statement from KB and he claims that he doesn't have a problem with grog?

    And they are talking fines and maybe back next week?

    Shakes my head.

    Just watched HQ. I don't believe what I've heard.
    Poor old KB. Stuff the ARU.
    I'm bloody livid listening to this crap.
    A bit later.....
    Having watched it again I am gob smacked! Because he is aboriginal we must understand. That's how I understood RUPAs words. Not one mention of the Henjak incident.
    I'm close to saying stuff the AUR. I have FOX, Santana, maybe I should just follow Wasps.
    If this becomes a self imposed couple of week ban the ARU and the FORCE can stick my membership were the sun don't shine!
    Sorry all but this is the biggest cop out for years.

    If Beale was a second rate player, was not aboriginal and was not an east coast darling, would the 'sanction' still be as lenient? I think not.

    It's f*ked up. The ARU is f*ked up. Beale himself is f*ked up it seems.

    What next?!

    What ever they want I suppose.
    Just making a laughing stock of them selves.
    I must say Canno was as effective as a fart in a perfume factory. He really should have bought up the Henjak fiasco.
    Next week we will find out that the ARU is running a drug rehab clinic. For current players!
    What's the efing point. Au rugby is stuffed. You can tear up on man's contract but the next you don't????
    I think Henjak should get himself a good barrister. Watch out ARU!

    What sanction?
    There has been no sanction imposed. Apart from Kb saying " he needs. Help"

    Exactly! That's why I put some ' ' around the word. It's a farce!!

    If it wasn't for Vuna's tweets and the quick-thinking G&GR girl who happened to see them and take screen shots, the press and the rest of us might never have found out about Beale's latest douchebaggery!

    Why does it matter what his origins are? If he or any other player cannot abide by the rules and/or act professionally, they should be shown the door.

    No wonder Vuna was banned from social media. It could have been swept under the carpet without him. I reckon the ban will be until they believe he's needed for the Lions tour. I think they'd be better without him!

    The word is that Kurtley is about to start a period of "introspection", and will not return until this is complete - (probably shortly before the Lions arrive).

    Would like to hear what Lote Taquiri ( who really did bugger all in comparison) and Wendell Sailor"s thoughts are on this one. They were kicked out and had 3 times the talent of KB. I think they're either taking political correctness to a ridiculous level or are the Wallabies really that desperate for players to keep on taking this shit!

    The bloke has been told he is rugby's gift since he was 14 years old. This is a symptom of a ridiculous media hype about Kurtley Beale since before he had pubes.

    Kurtley has had a ridiculous amount of pressure heaped on him since his school days. He has had no role models in his private life outside of rugby. The Ella's need to be careful about blowing their trumpets because they were hardly angels.........times have changed though and you have to eveolve.

    The reality is Kurtley has some issues and it is good that the ARU/Rabbles are helping him sort this out.

    It is fair to say that nobody wants to lose his talents to another code. It is fair to say that his issues can be dealt with.

    The problem is the lack of direction for Kurtley.

    His life outside of the training paddock/match day obligations is a wreck. He is heading for the scrap heap of life and he's got his foot on the accelerator.

    Worse than a ban, fine, rest.........he should be told that this indescretion has cost him his place in the wallabies team to play the Lions. If he ever wants to play for the wallabies again, he needs to stay out of the headlines, stay off the booze and get himself down to his fighting weight of ( x? ). If his weight goes over x , then he won't be selected.

    Henjack was a no talent Bogan. Lets keep it real. This is the real world. KB is a highly talented rugby player and an aboriginal athlete of exceptional ability. It would be nice to keep him in the game and to use his profile to develop other aboriginal kids with extraordinary ability.

    There is no point throwing the baby out with the bathwater. The difference between Henjack and Beale is that nobody wanted Henjack on their playing roster. What has he done since?

    Kurtley needs better role models in his life.

    Kurtley has some value because of his talent. He just needs to be managed better.

    That's just how it is.

    Life isn't a level playing field.
