Rugby Australia Release Statement On “Unacceptable” Folau Post

Rugby Australia have released a short statement addressing the “unacceptable” social media post which Israel Folau issued that contains anti-gay sentiments. 

Folau posted a message on his Instagram account which contains an image which says that “hell awaits” drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolators. The image also states that “only Jesus saves”.

Folau leads with the caption:

“Those that are living in Sin will end up in Hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him.”

Rugby Australia have issued a short statement today.

“The content within the post is unacceptable. It does not represent the values of the sport and is disrespectful to members of the Rugby community.

“RA integrity unit has been engaged.”
