Australia back Kurtley Beale is ready to deliver when called upon by head coach Michael Cheika after a brief appearance so far in this year's Rugby Championship.

Beale made an impressive cameo off the bench against Argentina by playing a hand in the final two tries that secured the Wallabies a bonus point.

With last year's disciplinary issues seemingly far behind him, Beale wants the side to kick on against the All Blacks in Sydney.

"It was a good five minutes but overall I thought it was a good win for the guys. They really stepped up and hopefully we can build on that," Beale told reporters on Sunday.

"My focus will be purely on contributing to the team, whether that be from the bench, starting or outside the 23. There's exciting times ahead."

Beale's versatility makes him a valuable selection for the Wallabies and he doesn't mind where his chance comes on the pitch, whether at fly-half, centre, the wings or full-back.

"I'll play anywhere I can get my hands on the ball, the inside options but if I get the opportunity to play at the back, I'll take that as well," added Beale.

"I haven't had that chat with Cheik yet but I'm sure he's got a plan."
