Could soon be out of collar if he is sacked by the Australian RFU. Apparently,he has made some remarks about players of a certain orientation & could be kicked out of RU altogether. I wonder if he will be welcomed back into the Rugby League fold & he is still only 30.

NRL have already said they won't have him and I wouldn't want him anywhere near Warrington (or Super League).

He didn't just make 'some remarks' he said hell awaits gay people.

Who still believes in heaven and hell in this day and age? Fantasists!

It tells you all you need to know about religion. Religion is backwards, deluded and can be very dangerous.

The word religion should be scrapped from human use and they should all be called “mythology” like old Greek and Norse religions and stories are.

Following anti-gay comments made on his social media accounts in April 2019, Rugby Australia announced their intention to void Folau's contract and remove him permanently from the Australian national team. That same day the chairman of the Australian Rugby League, Peter Beattie, announced that Folau would be banned from any NRL team in the future.

Could be worse. Superleague clubs have accepted dog fondlers, druggies drunkards & wife beaters.

Donald Tusk said there is a special place in hell for Brexiteers.
Seems to me that Folau's remarks are no more than his opinion & his right to free speech has been sacrificed for political correctness. I am sure much worse is heard from the terraces at sports fixtures every day.

I'm not sure Donald Tusk will be signing for Super League clubs anytime soon . . .

That old free speech myth. Folau was free to say what he did, companies have the right not to employ him. Just as you have a right to call your boss whatever you want . . .

Political correctness is completely irrelevant. In this modern day his views are disgraceful and Neanderthal. Rugby is a game of respect Folau has demonstrated none.

We’re all entitled to an opinion but he is a person who has responsibility and he has failed hugely .

Totally unacceptable.

This is exactly the reason why gay rugby/football players will not come out because who on earth would want to face an opposing player with them views?Done himself no favours only to make himself look an idiot when all he had do was keep his mouth shut.
