Israel Folau's code of conduct hearing continues in Sydney

SYDNEY — A code of conduct hearing to determine the playing future of Wallabies star Israel Folau will continue on Sunday at the headquarters of Rugby Australia after a full day of testimony on Saturday.

The 30-year-old outside back is appearing before the hearing to fight Rugby Australia's decision to terminate his contract after he posted in mid-April on social media that gay people, along with other "sinners," will face damnation unless they repent.

Folau is facing a three-person code of conduct panel chaired by Sydney lawyer John West. The panel also includes Rugby Australia representative Kate Eastman and Rugby Union Players Association representative John Boultbee.

A decision is not expected to be announced this weekend.
