The Melbourne Rebels start their trial matches this Friday evening, with a game against the Chiefs, but may be without one of their big off-season signings.

The Rebels signed both Kurtley Beale and James O’Connor in a bid to be more competitive this season, but Beale might have to wait until later to pull on the new jersey, with a hamstring related injury potentially keeping him on the side lines for longer than expected.

Speaking at coaching session with kids this week, Beale said that he was aiming to be ready for his new team’s first SupeRugby outing, which ironically enough, is against his previous employers, the NSW Waratahs.

Beale originally hurt himself in the Rugby World Cup match against South Africa, and after being selected in the Third/Fourth play off game as well, reinjured himself.
