    Tonga to apply social media restrictions on Israel Folau

    Israel Folau will be a prized addition to Tongan rugby but will have restrictions on what he posts on social media, along with all his teammates, coach Toutai Kefu says.

    Folau, an evangelical Christian, will soon make his return to international rugby, three years on from the termination of his Wallabies contract after he posted a meme on social media that said “hell” awaits homosexual people and other groups.

    Former World Cup winner and Wallabies great Kefu said he had yet to discuss social media with Folau but trusted the 33-year-old would not cause problems for his team in the meantime.

    “That’s probably the elephant in the room,” the Tonga coach told Reuters.

    “At this point in time, (trust) is what we probably have to rely on. But I mean, we would have some restrictions, like we always do every campaign with all the players.

    “I’m sure we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”

    Outside back Folau has posted only a handful of times to the more-than-400,000 followers on his social media accounts since being sacked by Rugby Australia and his former Super Rugby side New South Wales Waratahs in 2019.

    Funny thing about some of these born agains. They don't seem to mind detailing the sins of the great unwashed, whilst at the same time lying through their teeth and wedging the vulnerable. Hope the other one doesn't rise from the ashes after a few years.

    I think Happy is more of a Happy Fapper than Happy Clapper.
