Rugby Australia boss Raelene Castle has denied a report stating the settlement figure reached with Israel Folau is eight million Australian dollars.
The Daily Telegraph reported Rugby Australia and Folau settled the former Wallaby’s wrongful termination claim for the large sum after the fullback initially sought $14 million in compensation.
However, Castle has come forward on social media to deny the report.
Folau settlement numbers are confidential but numbers being speculated are wildly inaccurate
Folau sought compensation from Rugby Australia after he believed he had his contract torn up wrongfully for a code of conduct breach on social media.
