Rugby union star Kurtley Beale’s sexual assault trial has resumed after being delayed due to an illness among the jury. Beale, 35, is facing charges of sexual assault related to an alleged incident at a pub in Bondi in December 2022. The complainant is expected to testify that Beale touched her buttocks in the bar and then assaulted her in a restroom cubicle. Beale has pleaded not guilty, with his defense arguing that the encounter was consensual. The trial is ongoing in the NSW District Court. Support is available for victims from the National Sexual Assault, Domestic Family Violence Counselling Service.
