Transfer Rumour: Billionaire ready to offer Israel Folau lifeline

It has been reported that Australian billionaire Andrew Forrest could offer Israel Folau a career lifeline in Asia if the star Wallaby’s contract is terminated following his homophobic comments.

Sydney’s Daily Telegraph reported that Forrest, himself a committed Christian, could find a spot for Folau in his Global Rapid Rugby competition, which is set to kick off next year.

“Global Rapid Rugby has spoken to a number of talented international players and will continue to do so,” a spokesman for the competition told AFP when asked about Folau.

“No contracts have been offered to any players.”

He added that marquee players were likely to be a part of the competition.

It said the competition was interested in making the fullback a marquee signing for either the Hong Kong-based South China Tigers or the Singapore-based Asia Pacific Dragons.
