David Pocock responds with his view after Israel Folau says no to Gay marriage

Wallabies superstar Israel Folau has sparked a Twitter backlash by revealing he will not support the push for same-sex marriage with teammate David Pocock being one of those opposed to his views.

Folau, a devout Christian, tweeted on Wednesday afternoon: “I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions. but personally, I will not support gay marriage.”

His views are in stark contrast to Wallabies teammate Pocock, who has taken the year off rugby but will be back in the Test ranks alongside Folau next year.

He tweeted his view hours after Folau.


A passionate campaigner for a variety of social issues including homophobia and marriage equality, Pocock famously declared four years ago that he would not tie the knot with his partner Emma Palandri until gay people were legally permitted to do the same.
