    The deeply religious 30-year-old can appeal the decision to Rugby Australia within the next 72 hours but will reportedly bypass that step and take his landmark case straight to the Supreme Court.
    Do it Izzy.

    You probably won't win but keep RA focused on anything that's not their actual job

    RA don't need a court case for that. A ball of wool on the floor is enough

    I noticed that RA managed to set the appeal time limit at ... You won't believe this ... 72 hours!!!

    I take back every nasty comment about RA, somebody there has a great sense of humour

    Will Izzy appeal in August?

    There’s been a few media reports suggesting he will bypass Rugby Australia’s appeal process and go to them Supreme Court which would negate the 72 hour timeframe.

    I also saw that the ATO is watching his church for donations for funding his potential appeal.

    I wonder if the ATO looked into the salary payments made to him and Pocock by private parties through the Australian Rugby Foundation, which also has charity status....

    Israel Folau eyes industrial relations expert for court move

    Israel Folau has reportedly turned to high-profile workplace relations lawyer, Stuart Wood QC, as he considers taking his stoush with Rugby Australia to the courts.

    According to a Fairfax report, Folau is keen to engage the Melbourne-based silk who has built a reputation for representing individuals in unlawful termination cases where free speech is a central issue.

    A Folau spokesman confirmed to Fairfax that Folau and Wood were in talks, but that the barrister had not yet been “engaged” by the embattled superstar.

    The Folau camp are still considering their next steps in the legal battle. Folau could challenge Rugby Australia in the Supreme Court over his high-level breach of contract.

    His other avenue of appeal could be to take up the case with the Fair Work Commission, lodging a complaint for unlawful dismissal on religious grounds. The 30-year-old rugby star has until June 10 to begin that process.

    If the two parties cannot agree a settlement — something RA will certainly seek to avoid the saga further damaging the code’s reputation — the Federal Court looms as a potential battleground.

    Folau has stated an appeal through Rugby Australia’s internal channels was not a viable option, stating he held fears over unfair treatment through his appea process.

    “My decision not to commence Rugby Australia’s appeal process is in no way an acceptance of the judicial panel’s findings,” Folau said in a Monday statement.

    “I simply do not have confidence in Rugby Australia’s ability to treat me fairly or lawfully throughout this process.”

    The Rugby Union Players’ Association (RUPA) has meanwhile promised a review into players expressing their beliefs, seeking clear guidelines for players to avoid a similar situation in the future.

    “RUPA notes that Rugby AU has not yet provided any clear or specific parameters to the professional playing group specifying how it expects individual professional players to express their faith and beliefs in a manner acceptable to Rugby AU,” a RUPA statement read.

    “To address this, RUPA will immediately establish and undertake an expression of faith and beliefs review alongside its players, incorporating advice from those with and without strong religious beliefs, with an aim to hold a first meeting of the review committee following the conclusion of the Super Rugby and World Rugby Sevens Series seasons.”

    RA boss Raelene Castle offered her support to the review, stating: “We look forward to working with RUPA to fully understand their plans for the review and how Rugby Australia can support it.”

    I'm curious Jargs.

    If Folau does as you suggest and RugbyAustralia is forced, in fact,to go bankrupt/administration/receivership, what do see happening next for the Rugby governing body?

    I presume the Australian Sports Commission would finally lift a finger at that point.

    Possibly a governing body which isn't beholden to just two states, which would be nice.

    Well you have a couple of good answers there X; though I thought they were pretty obvious. A negative would be if the IRB bailed them out and not much changed at Moore Park. I don't know if that is likely. Has there been any precedents?

    Alison and Sheikh hit the nail on the head.

    Hoping for a process similar to what happened to soccer in Australia bout 15 years ago (Google Crawford report if you really want details) where they should set up a board and process that is equitable to the rest of Australia, not just 2 states.

    Absolute bonus would be the Wallabies being reduced to Minnow status but that might be a reach.
