Rugby Australia says it intends to terminate Israel Folau’s contract following a social media post by the full-back in which he said “hell awaits” gay people.

Folau, 30, has 73 caps and was expected to play at this year’s World Cup.

“He does not speak for the game with his recent social media posts,” said Rugby Australia and NSW Rugby Union.

“In the absence of compelling mitigating factors, it is our intention to terminate his contract.”
