NRL Rules Out Any Chance Of Israel Folau Joining Their Ranks

Folau, who became Super Rugby's record try-scorer last week, is a dual worldwide who began his career in rugby league, and there was speculation the sport could offer him a lifeline if he is kicked out of rugby union.

Folau came under fire a year ago for saying "God's plan" for gay people was "hell" unless they repented for their sins.

Wallabies star Israel Folau may not have a leg to stand on in his current stoush with Australian Rugby, having brought the game into disrepute with his latest social media posts. "We are committed - with the RFU - to keeping rugby in England inclusive and some of the highlighted social media posts over the last day or so are in opposition to this", Premiership Rugby said.

Jones said Folau was asked to sign a contract which said he wouldn't talk about any of his views that aren't consistent with Rugby Australia's sponsor Qantas.

"Following today's meeting the two organisations will update their respective boards on the matter to consider next steps".

Brumbies flyer Tom Banks put his hand up to replace Wallabies fullback Israel Folau with a stunning return to form against the Lions in Super Rugby.

Rugby Australia CEO Raelene Castle said in a statement: "In the absence of compelling mitigating factors, it is our intention to terminate his contract".

It comes as Sport Australia boss Kate Palmer commended Rugby Australia's strong stance against discrimination and vilification and urged all sports to follow suit.

"We will continue to work with Israel, his representatives, NSW Waratahs and Rugby Australia to ensure this occurs".

"So this morning I got 3 phone calls from people telling me to "unlike" the Izzy Folau post", Vunipola wrote alongside a picture of a Bible passage.

Folau has played 73 tests and helped Australia to the final of the 2015 World Cup in England, where they were beaten by New Zealand.

Brumbies captain Christian Lealiifano said players have to be more careful about what they post on social media in the wake of Folau's controversial posts. "This is my position on it", he said on his Instagram page.

"I'm just excited about Joey's 50th game, back in front of our home fans in Canberra".

"Some of the comments which have been seen are far closer to hateful than I think appropriate for what people should be doing on social media".

"When people of influence use their public profiles to demean and discriminate, we can not allow such divisive comments to go unchecked".
