  • Former Wallaby Israel Folau said on Friday he had thought about retiring after he was sacked last May by Rugby Australia over a homophobic social media post.
  • Folau, 30, who scored 37 tries in 73 Test appearances, is set to make his debut for rugby league side Catalans Dragons this weekend after the French club handed him a one-year contract.
  • Folau, a dual code international, was fired last May by Rugby Australia over a social media post warning “hell awaits” gay people and others he considers sinners.
