A promising young halfback who was crowned the National Youth Competition Under-20s Player of the Year as well as Halfback of the Year while playing for the St George Illawarra Dragons during the 2009 season. In a stellar year, the Wollongong junior scored 250 points from 17 tries and 91 goals as well as guiding the Dragons to a finals appearance.
His potential saw him attract interest from several NRL clubs but he played another season in the NYC competition before he signed with the Newcastle Knights on a long-term three-year deal from 2011 to 2013. He scored a try on debut for the Knights in the opening round of 2011 but his time at the club was short-lived, with the 22-year-old being granted a mid-season release to join the Gold Coast Titans after being told he was not in Newcastle’s long-term plans under new coach Wayne Bennett.
Now resigned with the Gold Coast Titans, Beau is the most talented halfback to pull on boots, but it is his newly found determination to be successful and willingness to do the hard work and mature which has seen him gain the respect from his fellow team mates. 2014 season looks likely to be his coming of age season and hopefully the Titans fans will witness a mature on field leader when Beau once again pulls the Titans jersey on and runs out onto Skilled Park.
After struggling to get first team action at the Titans, Beau has signed with the Dragons for the 2015 season.
