Israel Folau has requested a code of conduct hearing after he was issued with a breach notice by Rugby Australia over his controversial social media posts.
The union's integrity unit had deemed him to have committed a "high-level breach of the Professional Players' Code of Conduct", warranting the termination of his employment contract.
Rugby Australia said it would now make arrangements with the Rugby Union Players' Association (RUPA) to organise the code of conduct hearing.
Chief executive Raelene Castle said: "Israel has responded formally today to request a Code of Conduct hearing which, under the circumstances, was not an unexpected outcome. We will now work to confirm a date for the hearing as soon as possible.
"After the date for the hearing is confirmed, Rugby Australia and the NSW Rugby Union will make no further comment on the matter until the Code of Conduct process has concluded."
The Australia star has been deemed guilty by the union's integrity unit of a "high-level breach of the Pro Players' Code of Conduct".Read the full story ›
