Wallabies five-eighth Kurtley Beale will face one count of common assault following an incident at a Brisbane hotel.

This followed Beale and teammate Quade Cooper being refused entry at the Victory Hotel in the early hours of the morning before the first Australia-Wales Test.

The Australian Rugby Union, who were alerted to the common assault charge by Queensland Police yesterday, have put on hold its disciplinary process surrounding Beale until the police matter is resolved.

Also until then, Beale remains available for Super Rugby and the Wallabies.

There is not expected to be any action taken over Cooper's involvement that night.

The ARU said their own investigation into the incident had been put on hold.

β€˜β€˜The ARU disciplinary process into the same issue headed by Integrity Manager Phil Thomson has been placed on hold until the external matter is resolved,’’ a media official said.
