Rugby Australia will sack Israel Folau over ‘disrespectful’ anti-gay posts

The NRL has slammed the door shut on offering a career lifeline to under-fire cross-code star Israel Folau. Folau is set to be sacked by the Australian Rugby Union after he doubled down on his comments that homosexuals were going to hell on Instagram. Following the news that he would be sacked from Rugby, speculation immediately began on whether the star athlete would make a return to the NRL, and if so which club. But any hope of a return to the NRL, where he began his career, has evaporated after ARLC chairman Peter Beattie said the dual international failed the character test and they would not register a contract. “Israel Folau fails the NRL’s inclusiveness culture, which is a policy strongly supported by the ARLC,” Mr Beattie told AAP. “The ARLC, therefore, would not support his registration to play NRL”.
