In form Waratahs five eighth Kurtley Beale is under no illusions about just how tough the task is facing his side when they meet the Brumbies on Friday night.

Beale was a standout performer for the Waratahs in their win over the Reds on the weekend with his trysaving tackle on flying Queensland winger Chris Feauai Sautia the talk of the town.

The Brumbies though were simply unstoppable in their 40 point demolition of the Hurricanes and Beale knows his side will need to be at their very best against a Wallaby heavy ACT team.
