  • Irael Folau of the Waratahs looks on during the round 8 Super Rugby match between the Blues and Waratahs at Eden Park

As Folau fights for his right to express his religious freedom, Wallabies coach Michael Cheika says his "disrespectful" comments would now make it impossible to pick the superstar for Australia at this year's Rugby World Cup. "If that's not to continue on playing, so be it", he told the Sydney Morning Herald on Sunday, in his first interview since posting the Instagram comments.

Rugby Australia and New South Wales Rugby have both said that they intend to terminate the player's contract over the row, ejecting him from the Australian national team the New South Wales Waratahs.

I'll stand on what the Bible says.

The rugby star, who is Christian, posted messages on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday (April 10) telling "drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters" that "hell awaits" unless they "repent". "I can see the other side of the coin where people's reactions are the total opposite to how I'm sharing it".

An unrepentant Folau broke his silence on Sunday, saying his faith comes before rugby and he will walk away from the game if it is "God's will".

"It's obviously a decision that's in the process right now but I believe in a God that's in control of all things", Folau said.

Mais pour accueillir de tels joueurs, l'actuel 3e de Liga va bien évidemment devoir faire le ménage dans son effectif. Mais attention, il est hors de question de tout changer à Madrid.

His unchanged stance means it is unlikely that Folau will feature for the Wallabies this summer at the Rugby World Cup, particularly as sponsors have taken notice of the controversy.

"I made the calls and left the messages".

"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".

'In saying that, obviously I love playing footy and if it goes down that path I'll definitely miss it. "I can't change what the word of God says". "These comments are really disappointing and clearly don't reflect the spirit of inclusion and diversity that we support", a Qantas spokesman said in a statement sent to CNN. But my faith in Jesus Christ is what comes first, ' he said.

Matty McLean says Folau has to face repercussions like anyone else but Jack Tame wonders if he did it on objective.
