McKenzie believes Beale will sign a new deal to keep the back at the Waratahs.
Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie is confident Kurtley Beale will remain available for the national team by resisting the temptation of a lucrative move to European rugby or rugby league.
The versatile back has enjoyed a strong season in Super Rugby with the Waratahs which has caught the attention of NRL clubs, as well as European and Japanese rugby clubs, however McKenzie says he believes Beale will sign a new deal with the NSW side.
“I don’t have any fears or concerns about that, I’m sure we’ll get an outcome,” he told the Daily Telegraph.
“I’m not in the direct negotiations but I’m confident we’ll get an outcome.
“He looks like he’s enjoying his football, the guy is pretty positive and he’s making a difference, so that’s a good scenario.
“That positivity hopefully turns into a contract.”
Beale has revived his career with the Waratahs after a disastrous period at the Melbourne Rebels, where he punched two team-mates during after a Super Rugby match in Durban.
Now back in his home city, Beale has undergone counselling for alcohol-related issues and has led the Waratahs to a Super Rugby semi-final against the Brumbies on Saturday.
