Folau’s Cancelled Contract Costs Him AU$14m

December 30, 2019 by

Israel Folau has alleged that not only has Rugby Australia’s decision to cancel his contract over his anti-gay social media posts biased, but the termination has also cost him AU$14 million. He’s claimed that one of the members of the tribunal who decided on his case is biased thanks to their involvement in pro-LGBTI concerns.

The disgraced player got saw his contract abruptly ended in May 2019 over an Instagram post in which he proselytised that gays and other factions were destined for hell. Thankfully Rugby Australia viewed this irresponsible action as a high-level contract breach and Folau lost not only his four-year contract worth AU$4 million but multiple sponsorship deals along with it.

He is now suing Rugby Australia for damages and also wants them to apologise and reinstate him at the NSW Waratahs. His amended state of claim states that his loss and damages of AU$14 million consists of his contract being cancelled, which should have extended from May this year to November 2022 for AU$4.2 million. This is along with the loss of guaranteed payments for Test matches to the tune of AU$300 000, lost test match payments for 2022 of up to AU$150 000, and lost revenue from sponsors for AU$300 000. He also wants to be compensated for branded children’s camp payments of AU$300 000, extra base salary and sundry payments ranging between AU$1.5 million and AU$3 million, and the loss of cash proceedings from his international career of between AU$500 000 and AU$4.5 million.
