Israel Folau guilty of high-level code of conduct breach

From Morning Report, 8:11 am on 8 May 2019

The Wallabies fullback Israel Folau is a step closer to being sacked by Rugby Australia after being found guilty of committing a high-level breach of the player's code of conduct. Folau faced a three-day hearing to decide whether his post on social media that said "hell" awaited "drunks, homosexuals, adulterers" and others was a breach of its rules. The three-member panel is now considering what sanctions Folau will face. Peter FitzSimons is a former Wallaby who's now a journalist at the Sydney Morning Herald.
