The RaboDirect Rebels have decided not to extend the contract of Kurtley Beale beyond the 2013 season and confirmed his departure from the Club following the Rebels 38-37 win over the Highlanders at AAMI Park Friday night.

Beale becomes the second high profile player to depart the club in a fortnight with the recent departure of James O'Connor.

"Whilst Kurtley has been a valuable and popular player for the Rebels over the last two years, it is no secret that he has been facing some significant personal challenges. The Rebels have supported him through this process and at all times have made decisions in the best interests of Kurtley's welfare," said Chief Executive, Rob Clarke.

"Kurtley will continue his off-field program in Sydney and the Rebels believe that he should remain there supported by his family network."
 
Clarke said, "The Melbourne Rebels have announced some major changes in recent weeks, signifying a strong intention to elevate the performance of the organisation and build a sustainable winning culture both on and off the field."
