He has more reason than anyone to be riled by last weekend's match-turning Super Rugby incident in Christchurch, but NSW Waratahs centre Kurtley Beale has left the controversy behind.
Beale was struck in an off-the-ball incident late in the first half by Crusaders prop Joe Moody, who was not penalised at the time and backed up later in the movement to score a try.
It was the start of the competition's greatest comeback, as the Crusaders rallied from a 29-0 deficit to win 31-29.
All Blacks front-rower Moody was later cited for alleged foul play and suspended for two matches after pleading guilty to striking.
Beale said he hadn't suffered any ill affects from the contact and he was clearly philosophical about the outcome.
"I've just moved on from the matter now. It's obviously been dealt with," Beale told the media on Tuesday in Sydney.
"He's just gone and got me on the jaw a bit.
"But obviously, in the heat of battle, I just had to continue on the next job and that's what I did."
He said Tahs captain Michael Hooper handled the situation well.
Beale never contemplated staying down or making a big fuss about the contact to try to influence the officials.
"Not at all. You've just got to back whatever the call is," Beale said.
