INJURY UPDATE: The Waratahs have a new injury concern ahead of the 2018 Super Rugby season.

Wallaby Kurtley Beale suffered an elbow injury during training for the Waratahs' Brisbane Tens side.

The 29-year-old is one of the tournament's promotional ambassadors, suffered the injury in training last week and was unable to shake it off in time.

Brisbane would have been Beale's first run with the Waratahs since he injured his knee playing for the side in 2016, before a stint in England, but that return will have to wait.

"I’m absolutely gutted that I won’t be able to take the field," Beale said.

"I’ve been looking to this tournament from the moment I re-signed with the Waratahs.

"It was going to be a real highlight of the season, so I’m bitterly disappointed to miss out,"

Beale will be monitored in the coming days to determine his availability for the Waratahs' final Super Rugby trial against the Rebels on February 15 and round one a week later.

The Waratahs play the Chiefs, Highlanders and French side, Pau in their Brisbane Tens pool matches.
