Folau continue talks with Rugby Australia

Folau continue talks with Rugby Australia

By Semi Turaga
Tuesday 03/12/2019

After 12 hours of negotiations Israel Folau and Rugby Australia, have not come to a resolution, but talks will continue. 

TVNZ News reports the sacked Wallaby and his netballer wife Maria Folau went to the Federal Court in Melbourne yesterday for a mediation meeting over his $14 million compensation claim against Rugby Australia.

Folau claims he was wrongfully dismissed by Rugby Australia and Rugby NSW after a controversial Instagram post in April condemning "drunks" and "homosexuals" and warning "hell awaits" them.

The former rugby league and AFL player last week increased his compensation claim from $10 million to $14 million, and said the Wallabies would have done better in the 2019 Rugby World Cup if he was playing.
