Israel Folau has finally settled his legal dispute with Rugby Australia and NSW Rugby.

The terms of the settlement will remain confidential, according to a joint statement released by Rugby Australia.

“Rugby Australia, NSW Rugby and Israel Folau have today settled their legal dispute following the dismissal of Israel Folau after he posted a religious message on social media (the Social Media Post),” the RA statement read.
Good luck to Izzy, I hope he skinned them!!! :D

$8m payout for Izzy?..........the lesson here is, sinners should not mess with agents of our Lord. ;)

Matthew 5:10
God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

I actually watched a bit of BOLT last night and his comment on RA settling prior to court was...
Take that Bandana Man (lefty Fitzsimons)

The whole issue was badly handled by RA from the start.
All they had to do was state clearly RA does not Share Izzys religious beliefs BUT they should also have said they respect his right to quote his religious beliefs...even in the modern media form of Memes.,
Castle rushed out yesterday to fend off what is the start of guesstimates about the settlement.
She also said Rugby was a very INCLUSIVE game but apparently not inclusive enough when it came speaking religious belief.
RA brown nosed to the Qantas CEO and it was all downhill from there.
if you don't like or don't believe others religious beliefs ….ignore them , leave them to themselves.....as long as they are not doing what the LGBTQI mob are doing.....running witchunts

I now wait for all the activists to start up in Melbourne when TA honour Margaret Court for her brilliant sport achievements 50 yrs ago.

Former Test centre Morgan Turinui has been named as the new General Manager of the Classic Wallabies, replacing the recently departed Justin Harrison.

Turinui, who played 20 Tests for the Wallabies between 2003 and 2005, was appointed as the new “Classics” boss following Harrison’s move to become CEO of the Rugby Union Players Association.

The “Classics” have grown significantly in recent years, and not only serve as a point of connection and welfare for past players but, in collaboration with the Australia Rugby Foundation, also act as a key engagement force for rugby in the community with games and clinics, particularly in the bush.

The Classic Wallabies also do great development work overseas.
