Israel Folau committed 'high-level breach': Rugby Australia

Unrepentant Israel Folau Happy To Give Up Rugby If It Is God’s Will

When asked whether he would select Folau again, Cheika, who fronted the media alongside Wallabies captain Michael Hooper and NSW Waratahs coach Daryl Gibson, said it was highly unlikely.

Castle described the Folau saga as "very disruptive" with the Wallabies left to face a hard World Cup campaign later this year without arguably their best player. He told the Sydney Morning Herald, "I'll stand on what the Bible says".

'It was made clear to him that any social media posts or commentary that is in any way disrespectful to people due to their sexuality will result in disciplinary action'. I can see the other side of the coin where people's reactions are the total opposite to how I'm sharing it.

LifeSiteNews has issued a petition to Rugby Australia's CEO, asking for Folau's reinstatement. God has given and continues to give me many reasons in life to be grateful'.

"I had a meeting with Israel last Friday. and explained the implications of this klind of posting and the grief that it causes and the disrespect that it causes and the harm that it causes for the rugby community", Castle said.

The 30-year-old devout Christian said on his Instagram account last week that "hell awaits" for "drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators". "Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him", his post said.

He said he would regard such a decision as "God's will".

But she added that Rugby Australia had made it very clear to Folau that further posts like that would be unacceptable, and that there would be disciplinary action taken if they appeared again.

This evening, the England international's club released a statement, in which they condemned Vunipola for making what they called " a serious error of judgement".

"Obviously I love playing footy", he assured, "and if it goes down that path I'll definitely miss it. He's saying how we live our lives needs to be closer to how God intended them to be".

If Folau opts for a code of conduct hearing, an independent three-person tribunal would hear the case and determine whether he has made a breach and, if so, what punishment is appropriate.

"We recognise that people have different belief systems and we expect everyone to be treated equally with respect and humility".

Vunipola has been formally warned about his future conduct by Saracens after the England No 8, who is also of Tongan heritage, defended Folau. Hell awaits you. Repent! The 73-times capped Wallaby full-back had his contract with the Rugby Australia and New South Wales Waratahs ended after being warned following similar comments previous year.

"But rugby is an inclusive sport, I think stats back up that when it comes to gender, race, religion, sexuality it is the most inclusive game around with great values and it's rare to come across bigotry, unlike in football where it seems to be every week". "These comments are really disappointing and clearly don't reflect the spirit of inclusion and diversity that we support", a Qantas spokesman said in a statement sent to CNN.
