Drew Mitchell Tears Into Israel Folau Following Launch Of Fundraising Campaign

Greed.

Israel Folau’s former teammate Drew Mitchell has made his feelings known on Twitter, after the sacked former Wallabies fullback launched a GoFundMe page in a bid to raise $3m for his legal battle against Rugby Australia.

Folau had his $4 million contract ripped up last month following a disciplinary hearing with the governing body, after he was found guilt of a “high-level breach” over a homophobic post on social media.

The 30-year-old has says he has already spent more than €56,000 of his own money in fees fighting his case – which is is now expected to rise to millions of Australian dollars.

But now he’s seeking help from the public – who he wants to pay his legal fees, and Mitchell is having none of it.

“YOU are in a fight that YOU chose to be in after YOU broke the terms of YOUR contract, the kids below are in a fight they NEVER wanted to be in & yet YOU think YOU deserve donations more than they do??!!” Mitchell wrote.

“It’s no longer about religion, it’s about YOU and YOUR greed.”
