Folau, who is a devout Christian, requested a hearing last month after being issued with the code of conduct breach that Rugby Australia believes warrants a termination of the 30-year-old’s contract.

The image posted by Folau on Instagram last month, which has not been deleted, listed “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters,” reading underneath, “Hell awaits you.”

Following a three-day hearing, Rugby Australia says that the disciplinary panel will “take further written submissions from the parties to consider the matter of sanction. A further update will be provided after the panel delivers its decision on sanction.”

Folau, who has made 73 appearances for the Wallabies, was expected to star for his country at this year’s World Cup.
