Wallabies' main man ready for director's role

Thursday, August 14, 2014

SYDNEY - He's the Wallabies' main man again and says he loves getting his hands on the ball, but Kurtley Beale also knows his job is more about creating opportunities for others.

"I've got some really good players in and around me, so my key role is to try and give them the ball as much as I can, and try and direct the play," Beale said after being named as five-eighth for Saturday night's Rugby Championship opener against New Zealand.

Beale will be back in Australia's gold No.10 jumper for the first time since the 2012 spring tour after beating NSW Waratahs teammate Bernard Foley to the chief playmaker's role. The classy utility played inside centre outside of Foley throughout the Waratahs' triumphant Super Rugby campaign and was expected to be named on the bench, as he was for the three-Test series against France in June.
