A woman accusing rugby star Kurtley Beale of rape made hand-written notes to herself before confronting him with the allegations in a secretly recorded phone call.
One of the notes mentioned trying to "convince him he is guilty and not innocent", a court heard on Thursday.
Beale, 35, is standing trial in the NSW District Court facing one count of sexual intercourse without consent and two counts of sexual touching following an incident at Bondi's Beach Road Hotel in December 2022.
The former Wallabies playmaker has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.
The woman, who cannot be legally identified, spoke to Beale about a month after the alleged assault in a call that was recorded by police without his knowledge.
She also wrote in her notes "he will be better off if he confesses" and reminded herself to "act friendly and normal".
The woman, who says Beale touched her backside and forced her to perform oral sex in the toilet cubicle, concluded her lengthy cross-examination by Beale's barrister, Margaret Cunneen SC, on Thursday.
"You wanted to convince him he was guilty didn't you?" Cunneen put to the woman regarding her call to Beale.
"No," she replied.
"Wasn't the point of the conversation to get him to admit the acts?" Ms Cunneen asked.
"I really wanted an apology," the woman said.
During the call, Beale apologised profusely to the woman, saying he "misread the situation".
"I know you misread the situation, that doesn't matter," the woman told Beale in the conversation.
Beale asked the woman if the call was being recorded, which she denied, telling him her therapist told her to make the call.
"You easily told that lie very spontaneously didn't you?" Ms Cunneen asked the woman.
"No," the woman replied.
Ms Cunneen suggested interactions between Beale and the woman on the night were consensual and she concocted a sexual assault to gain sympathy from her fiance, with whom she was having relationship issues.
Following an argument the couple had earlier in the day, the woman sent her fiance a text message asking him "do you still want to marry me?", the court heard earlier.
"You have made this up for your own purposes to save the proposed marriage that you had been anticipating so excitedly," Ms Cunneen put to the woman.
But the woman denied her contact with Beale was consensual and that she had been flirtatious with him prior to the alleged assault.
Beale's lawyers have highlighted CCTV footage showing the woman talking with her fiance and the rugby player in the minutes immediately after the alleged assault occurred in a nearby toilet.
Ms Cunneen suggested the woman's behaviour did not reflect her version of events, questioning why she didn't leave the venue or alert security.
"Why didn't you leave immediately after coming back from the toilets?" crown prosecutor Jeff Tunks asked the woman in a follow-up question.
"I didn't want to cause a scene … I didn't want to alarm (my fiance)," she replied.
The trial continues.
