Australian bad boy Kurtley Beale on Monday re-joined the Rebels training squad.

Australian bad boy Kurtley Beale on Monday re-joined the Rebels training squad.

However, there is no indication when he will resume playing.

The 2012 Rebels Players Player arrived in Melbourne on Sunday and completed training and team logistics Monday morning.
Over the past five weeks Beale has undertaken an off-field program, which was established following collaboration between Australian Rugby Union, the Rebels, the Rugby Union Players Association and Beale - in order to deal with his alcohol issues.
The former John Eales Medallist will train with the full squad Tuesday, in the Rebels only team training session of the week, due to a shortened preparation in the lead up to Friday's fixture against the Chiefs.
Rebels head coach Damien Hill said he will consult with the playing group and be guided by Beale's training form and integration within the team, before Beale is made available for selection.
Beale will continue to undertake an agreed off-field program to deal with his alcoholism.
At the request of Beale, he will not be available for media interviews until regaining selection for the Rebels.
On Wednesday Hill will announce his side to take on the reigning Super Rugby champions, the Chiefs, in Melbourne on Friday.

* Meanwhile Hill rued some indiscipline from his troops in the latter stages of the 26-30 loss to the Crusaders at the weekend.

"The last 15 minutes, we really didn't get the possession that we had been having and some back to back penalties to them meant the momentum started to change," Hill said.

"At this level, against a team like that, it only takes a missed tackle here or a knock on there and they are on the front foot.

"In saying that, I'm exceptionally proud of the performance the boys put in.

"I'm bitterly disappointed we weren't able to come away with the win for our supporters back home but the effort is definitely there.

:We need to continually work and fine tune the discipline, which is improving, and our execution, but the team stuck to the game plan very well.

"I am confident no matter who we are playing in this competition that if we put our game together we are exceptional competitors.

"We just need to work on the five percent or 10 percent to turn close losses into wins."
