Netball star Maria Folau free to post support of husband Israel's legal action
Netball gold medallist, Maria Folau, will not be penalised for backing her husband and sacked rugby star Israel Folau in his legal battle against Rugby Australia (RA).
The New Zealand International player re-posted Israel's online campaign, which seeks to raise AUS$3m for legal action against RA, on the grounds of religious discrimination.
The former Wallaby fullback had his AUS$4m (£2.2m) contract terminated after posting 'hell awaits' sinners including adulterers and homosexuals' on Instagram.
Netball Australia have insisted that Mrs. Folau is not in breach of her contract.
In a joint statement with the Super Netball league they said: "There is no action required by the league,
"We will continue to support Maria as a valued member of the Thunderbirds and the Suncorp Super Netball league."
Chief executive of regional body Netball South Australia, Bronwyn Klei said:
"While Netball SA in no way endorses the reposting, we do not believe Maria has contravened our social media policy."
Folau is a Silver Fern and Commonwealth Games gold medallist and is set to play for her country at this summer's Netball World Cup in Liverpool.
