KURTLEY Beale is planning to let his football do the talking in his comeback game for the Rebels in Melbourne tonight.

The Wallabies star was scheduled to face the media at yesterday's captain's run ahead of the team's match against the Chiefs, but asked the club to cancel his appearance.

Beale, on the bench for the clash against the defending champion, has missed six matches and has been undergoing counselling for alcohol-related issues since being sent home in disgrace from the team's South African tour.

The Rebels were returning to their hotel after a night out following their 64-7 loss to the Sharks when Beale punched captain Gareth Delve and winger Cooper Vuna.

"Although this was initially the club's intention to (hold the media conference), we fully support Kurtley's request and pledge that he will present to the media in the very near future," the Rebels said in a statement.

"Throughout Beale's off-field program, the club has ensured that each decision has and will continue to be in the best interest of the club and Kurtley."
