  • Kurtley Beale had three separate stints with Waratahs

One of the worst kept secrets in Australian rugby has been confirmed, with French club Racing 92 announcing the signing of Wallabies veteran Kurtley Beale on a two-year deal.

Beale will also be joined by six-test Wallabies utility forward Luke Jones, who will leave the Melbourne Rebels for a second stint in France following his three-year spell with Bordeaux between 2016 and 2019.

Jones ultimately returned to Australia for a tilt at the 2019 Rugby World Cup but just missed out on the final squad.

NSW Waratahs acknowledged Beale's "valued" contribution to the franchise in confirming his departure on Tuesday afternoon [AEST].

Waratahs captain Rob Simmons said of Beale's decision to move on: "That's huge news for us".

Capped 92 times by the Wallabies, Beale, 31, would remain eligible for Test selection via the Giteau Law.
