Former Wallaby Drew Mitchell has hit out at Israel Folau and his decision to appeal Rugby Australia’s termination of his contract.
Folau was given 48 hours to appeal the governing body’s decision to rip up his lucrative four-year contract, and has opted to do so despite previously stating he would “walk away” from his contract if his situation became “untenable”.
Mitchell has pointed out that the fact that Rugby Australia have made it quite clear they wish to terminate Folau’s contract – shows his position has become untenable.
“I would hate to think Izzy is a liar because we know what happens to them…” Mitchell said
Along with homosexuals, Folau also listed liars in his controversial post as people who are destined for “hell” unless they “repent”.
