Beale, nominated in 2010 as a potential IRB World Player of the Year, has not had the finest of seasons, not being able to play for the Rebels constantly due to fitness and injury.
Against the All Blacks in Sydney, Beale was relentless targeted, while the World Champions scored tries thanks to missed tackles from the out-of-form fullback.
However Deans felt that he would never see such a game from Beale again.
“He’s in a better space. I don’t think you’ll see a performance like that from Kurtley again,” Deans said.
“He’s too good a player for a repeat of that.
“It (the 27-19 loss to the All Blacks) was just one of those nights really. It goes from bad to worse and just compounds. It’s in the past fortunately.
“I’ve seen a player that’s very keen not to have a repeat. He’s working hard on and off the field. He’s doing his homework, making sure he’s around the detail, which helps a lot in terms of positioning.
“You’re less likely to get exposed.”
Reds flyer Dom Shipperley comes into the starting team as the Wallabies have said they wanted speed to combat the Springboks, which could potentially hail a more attacking Australia in Perth.
“He’s a young man that’s brimming full of confidence and he’s very excited,” Deans said.
“He looked like he put on half a yard at training today.”
