Folau drives off sponsor
RUGBY superstar Israel Folau has had his sponsored car taken off him by Land Rover after his contentious comments about gay people.
The luxury car company, which signed an $850,000-ayear deal with Rugby Australia in February, had given Folau a brand-new vehicle. But after the 29-year-old Wallabies fullback wrote on Instagram that gays were destined for hell, they repossessed it.
It is the first financial hit Folau has taken for his controversial stance.
