Australia assistant coach Nathan Grey says Kurtley Beale could still play a part in their tour of Europe.

Versatile back Beale was fined £24,600 by the Australian Rugby Union for sending an offensive picture message to a female ex-team official and was left out of the original touring party.

"Kurtley at the moment is back at home and he is training," Grey said.

"Once he is up to speed in terms of physical condition, he is definitely going to be considered for selection."

Grey added: "He hasn't played for a long period of time so we know he is working hard and trying to get up to speed."

Beale, 25, missed two Tests against Argentina and New Zealand while he awaited the outcome of the disciplinary tribunal.

Australia play the Barbarians on Saturday before Test matches against Wales, France, Ireland and England.
