Fijian Wallabies wing Marika Koroibete is standing by Israel Folau posting on Instagram over the weekend “we stand with #Israel Folau“.
Folau has been hit with heavy criticism after making controversial comments about gay people.
Koroibete also quoted the bible verse John 15:18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first”
Folau has also received support from Waratahs and Wallabies teammate Curtis Rona who also posted "We stand with #IsraelFolau" on his Instagram account.
Folau is due back in three weeks after tearing his hamstring in the Waratahs' win over the Brumbies a fortnight ago.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
