KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Folau is waiting to find out just what penalty will be imposed by Rugby Australia after an independent panel found him guilty of a "high level" breach of his contract - for his controversial social media posts.

Those that are living in Sin will end up in Hell unless you repent.

"Israel has failed to understand that the expectation of him as a Rugby Australia and NSW Waratahs employee is that he can not share material on social media that condemns, vilifies or discriminates against people on the basis of their sexuality".

"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", Castle said.

Jones, who coached the Wallabies during a golden era in the late 1980s, has been a frequent critic of Rugby Australia and one of the staunchest defenders of Folau's right to free speech.

Mitchell also called out Folau's hypocrisy when he progressed to a code of conduct hearing despite writing in a Players Voice column previous year he would walk away from his deal if RA told him the situation became untenable.

Folau also quoted the King James version of Galatians 5:19‭-‬21, from which his Instagram post was inspired - and features a much longer list of wrongdoings.

"It's not an issue for Qantas, it's an issue for every potential sponsor for Rugby Australia, ever".

Folau had been given a formal warning for similar remarks on social media a year ago which caused an outcry and sponsors threatened to walk out on RA.

Do you think Israel Folau should be banned for making such comments?

In April, Australian rugby league's governing body ruled out Folau returning to the NRL.

The Waratahs admitted the ongoing sideshow had been a major distraction as they prepare to face the Lions this weekend in Super Rugby, the southern hemisphere competition in which Folau is the record try-scorer.

"They went back and said, "Oh, we need you to sign this with the additional social media clauses", and Israel Folau said, "Nah, I've already signed a contract".

"I challenge him to think how he could be a really positive role model for the Christian faith and attract people to the Christian faith - if you want to do that I don't think the kinds of messages that he's been sending out is the place to start."
"Man was made for woman to pro create that was the goal no?" Or he needs to buy himself a brain.

'Asics is dedicated to sport and its healthy contribution to society, ' the Asics statement said.

ASICS, which is also a leading Wallabies sponsor, severed ties with Folau, saying "we believe sport is for everyone and we champion inclusively and diversity".

'As such, our partnership with Israel has become untenable and he will no longer represent Asics as a brand ambassador'.
