Israel Folau has revealed how he resisted the "temptation" of a peace offering from Rugby Australia that would have allowed him to resurrect his playing career.
The troubled Wallabies star described his fallout with the governing body as "challenging" and spoke of being tempted by the "opportunity" to rekindle his career with the NSW Waratahs and Wallabies during a Sydney church address.
The fundamentalist Christian faces being sacked by RA after being found to have committed a high‑level code of conduct breach for an Instagram post that said hell awaited "drunks, homosexuals, adulterers" and others.
An independent three‑member panel is expected to announce Folau's sanction this week after deciding the controversial posts left him open to having his four year, $4 million contract torn up.
But, in a video of him speaking at a church service on Sunday afternoon Folau insisted the process was not finished and the "outcome is yet to be known".
He said potentially he could get terminated, which means that there's no more playing contract and therefore no more finances or money coming in.
