TRANSFER | Kurtley Beale’s next club revealed as he heads back to Europe

Racing 92 have confirmed the signings of Wallabies pair Kurtley Beale and Luke Jones ahead of the 2020/21 season this morning.

Racing’s sporting director, Yannick Nyanga, announced the new additions in a video released by the club today.

92-times capped Beale will bring major experience with him to France, with the 31-year-old capable of playing at out-half, in midfield, or at fullback. 

“We’ve tried to mix youth and experience in positions where we haven’t managed to pull through from our academy,” sporting director Yannick Nyanga said.

“We have two premium signings who will bring some experience and their ability,” he added.

Second row/blindside flanker Jones will move to France for the second time, having been with Bordeaux from 2016 until 2019. A six-times capped Wallaby, Jones returned home to join the Melbourne Rebels last year.

Beale and Jones will be linking up with a Racing squad that already includes stars like Finn Russell, Virimi Vakatawa, Simon Zebo, Camille Chat, and Teddy Thomas.
