Wallabies playmaker Kurtley Beale was suspended from all forms of rugby Friday after being charged over an alleged sexual assault at a Sydney pub.

“The step follows Mr Beale’s arrest and subsequent charge with serious criminal offences, and is in line with Rugby Australia’s Professional Player Code of Conduct,” Rugby Australia said.

The veteran fullback, who returned to Australia last year after a stint with French Top 14 side Racing 92, was arrested and taken to a Sydney police station on Friday afternoon. 

Beale, 34, returned to Sydney and the NSW Waratahs to keep himself in the frame to play for Australia at a fourth World Cup this year. 

Should he do so, he will join George Gregan and Adam Ashley-Cooper as only the third Australian to feature at four tournaments.
