Rugby Australia intends to terminate Israel Folaus contract following a social media post by the full-back in which he said "hell awaits" gay people.

Not just homosexuals but drunks, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and isolators are also on Izzy’s hitlist.
Going to wager that 90% of this forum are in trouble with Izzy

LOL Sounds like one hell of a party! I am so glad I'm going there. Cheers for the ticket Izzy!

PS On the atheist ticket, which does present a slight technical challenge.

Great idea, but it's a typo for 'idolators'.  So any fan who idolises Folau is going to hell; sounds fair to me ;-)

By all accounts, following his last social media backlash, the ARFU put a clause in his contract with regards to his usage of social media which I would guess this has contravened.

There's also suggestions that David Pocock could miss the whole tournament.

No way back for him, contractual clause or not.

Could be going to CAS on this one. it'll be freedom of speech verses social media. interesting times on where this will end up. Not because he deserves any support or the rights to carry on, but very interesting times.

Rugby Australia say their view hasn't changed following a meeting with Folau & any hopes of a change in codes for Folau have been dashed after Australia's National Rugby League has ruled out Folau switching codes to rugby league.

"Israel Folau fails the NRL's inclusiveness culture, which is a policy strongly supported by the Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC)," said ARLC chairman Peter Beattie.

Oh dear !

Billy Vinupola has now gone and 'liked' Folau's post. After being challenged he's apparently refused to unlike it.

I feel that this story also has some way to run.
