Israel Folau is set to be sacked following his social media posts on Wednesday night.
Folau wrote on Instagram that gays would be condemned to “hell” if they failed to “repent”.

Australian media reports, the governing body failed to make contact with Folau in the past 24 hours since, leaving them no choice but to sack their super star fullback.

In a joint statement by Rugby Australia boss Raelene Castle and NSW Rugby Union’s Andrew Hore tonight, the duo says that Folau’s actions did not represent the values of rugby and therefore had left them no choice but to terminate his four-year-deal.

Folau has a history of making controversial, homophobic comments and his latest effort called on “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters” to repent for their sins or else “hell awaits” them.
