"We want to make it clear that he does not speak for the game with his recent social media posts", Rugby Australia Chief Executive Raelene Castle and NSW Rugby Union CEO Andrew Hore said in a joint statement. However, since signing Folau to a lucrative $4 million deal, it has been revealed no specific clauses were inserted into his contract about his activity on social media.
"A further update will be provided after the panel delivers its decision on sanction", CNN said.
Should the panel choose the most severe level of sanctions in their power and terminate his four-year, $4 million contract, it's expected the dual worldwide will appeal. It prompts you to wonder what kind of society we're living in, ' Jones said. To have his contract torn up Folau needs to have committed a high-level breach - and the tribunal now needs to decide whether the appropriate penalty is a fine, a suspension or dismissal.
After defending Folau on the airwaves this morning, Jones - who coached the Wallabies in the 1980s and now hosts 2GB's popular breakfast radio show - relayed a message he said he'd received from the Wallabies star.
Some players have come out both in support and against Folau's sentiments since he published the post in April. You need to dot your i's and cross your t's across everything.

Trump said on Wednesday that China is mistaken if it hopes to negotiate trade later with a Democratic presidential administration. U.S. and Chinese trade officials are set to resume negotiations on Thursday and Friday in the hopes of striking a trade deal.
McLachlan said it was natural for people to question why Folau's contract didn't have a specific social media clause in it - especially given he was in a similar situation past year - but stood by his belief such a move could lead to more headaches.
"It may hurt us in the short term because it's a contentious issue which is obvious with the narrative in the public, but in the long run, I think Rugby Australia is going to be in a better position for it because they've stood up and said no". "Man was made for woman to pro create that was the goal no?"
