Israel Folau

Rugby Australia has sacked one of its biggest stars Israel Folau for social media posts which were critical of gay people.

The 30-year-old fullback’s contract was terminated on Friday after he was found guilty earlier this month of a “high-level breach of the professional players’ code of conduct” over the Instagram and Twitter post.

In the 10 April post he wrote “hell awaits” for “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolaters”.
