Fallen rugby star Israel Folau's social media accounts, which he used to promote the homophobic comments that got him sacked, disappeared Monday on the eve of a court hearing into his dismissal.

Both his Instagram and Twitter account disappeared less than 24 hours before his first day in court.

The former Wallaby launched legal action against Rugby Australia and the NSW Waratahs earlier this month, demanding an apology, compensation and the right to play again after he was sacked.

Folau will front a directions hearing tomorrow in Melbourne's Federal Circuit Court, where he is seeking $10 million in damages from Rugby Australia as well as the reinstatement of his contract that was torn up amid a storm of controversy stemming from a ferociously homophobic Instagram post Folau made on April 10th.

Those heading to the former Wallaby's Instagram page will be met with the message: "Sorry, this page isn't available".

Immédiatement après ces commentaires, les indices Dow Jones et S&P 500 ont perdu 1% respectivement à la mi-journée à Wall Street. Trump a ajouté: " On se porte bien mais on est menottés par la Fed ".

Folau lost his $4m, four-year contract and several sponsorship deals as a result.

The committed Christian argues he was unfairly dismissed on religious grounds.

More than 20,000 people have donated about $2.2 million to help fund Folau's legal fight through a campaign page set up by the Australian Christian Lobby.

Rugby Australia has insisted the firing was purely contractual, saying he had agreed not to disparage anyone over their sexual orientation following a similar controversy a year ago.
