The video, recorded in 2016, featured NRL player Corey Norman filming an older man snorting a white substance before Beale was recorded on camera laughing at the incident.
Former Parramatta Eel Norman was stood down for eight weeks and fined $20,000 at the time which the NRL integrity at the time said was partly related to the filming and distributing videos of incidents involving apparent drug use and sexual activity.

In a statement, Rugby AU CEO Raelene Castle said Beale had contacted her to apologise over the incident once the video became public and acknowledged "it did not reflect the image expected" of him as a Test player.
