Folau kills in return triumph for Dragons, angering the ABC

Israel Folau stars in Catalans Dragons debut but Super League still uneasy with Australian’s signing.


The Catalans Dragons fans came to support Israel Folau with open arms, and he didn’t disappoint.

At the first touch of the ball, in the sixth minute of the game, the 30-year-old Australian scored, giving the home team an early lead.

“Izzy, Izzy,” the crowd chanted, caring little about his past indiscretions

With his debut done, the Catalans Dragons will hope the controversy over Folau’s signing will fall away.

But it won’t

With each match, the hostility will remain. Most clubs in the 25-year-old league are deeply unsettled with the Australian’s entry into their competition …

And there are those in the UK who won’t just let it slide, even if Folau keeps his mouth shut as stipulated in his contract.

 
The clearly livid Samantha Hawley goes on to report that “management” of other clubs is still angry Folau was signed even if rugby fans are thrilled. Managers have to be officially “angry,” of course, to placate the gaystapo. Meanwhile, Lord Robert Hayward – the white 70 year-old founder of Britain’s first all-homosexual rugby team and a Folau hater – is demanding the Johnson government force Dragons sponsors to drop and bankrupt the French team. This is the first time in British history that a member of the House of Lords has been the ‘victim’ vis-a-vis a black employee of a football club.

    Only way Folau can redeem himself is if he belts his missus up and pissas in his mouth, oh and take some cocaine.

    I can’t work out which I dislike more, The ABC or The Gaystapo.

  3. Suburban Boy

    The ABC moron doesn’t realise that nothing energises and unites a team more than having everyone else in the competition hate them.

    Izzy! Izzy Izzy!

    Britain’s first all-homosexual rugby team

    They spend an awful lot of time in the scrum.

  5. Scott Osmond

    Problem with pendulums is they always swing back the other way. Tactics the lavender mafia use today legitimate the same tactics in the future.

    The Australian Broadcasting Corporation tries to tear down an Australian doing well overseas.

    And taxpayers have to hand over 1.2 Billion dollars to them every 365 days.

  7. JB of Sydney/Shanghai

    Well done Izzy!

  8. I can’t believe how much the Left fear one individual who has simply voiced a personal opinion. Methinks that it’s a clear indication that their foundations are very weak indeed.

    Why would a Conservative government of Great Britain do that to a French sporting team? Or any team.

    Lord Hayward must be raving mad. Or ‘raging’ mad.

  10. Scott Osmond

    Bemused, indeed. The left’s actions over the last couple of years doesn’t strike me as the behaviour of people who are in any shape winning. In fact it looks more like the desperate last gasps of a floundering ideology. But remember an animal is most dangerous when on it’s last legs.

  11. Porter

    Not just well done Izzy but well done Steve McNamara and Catalan Dragon management and all the Catalan Dragon team players and especially fans who basically just told the ponces to get their hand off it and reminded the world that rugby is a sport and everybody is entitled to think what they like and not be condemned for life just because they paraphrased something in the Bible.

  12. Bruce of Newcastle

    Lord Hayward would do well to read the tome that Folau quotes.
    And given the behaviour of the Lords of late he may not remain a Lord for much longer.
    A more unrepresentative bunch of people would be hard to find in a democracy.

  13. Bronson

    Good one Izzy. Mean while Australian rugby goes from bad to worse – atrocious start to the super rugby season by all the Australian teams. The blessed Waratahs are 3 zip.

  14. Infidel Tiger

    Quite a few brown Wallabies sending messages of support to Izzy on their social media today.

    Rugby is brown bread in this country now.

  15. mh

    Are Catalan Dragons considered a French or Spanish club?

  16. a happy little debunker

    Hey ABC, try and tell me Islam is wrong about homosexuals?
    I double dog dare ya!
    But since you won’t – it is clear that you will continue to illegally discriminate against & persecute Christians.
    Christians like Margaret Court, Christians like George Pell.
    Someone will eventually take the ABC to the Human Rights Commission and will win, bigly – until then, we know their bigotry, their hate and we will not forgive them.

    Saw this on wiki

    They have also played home matches in Barcelona, attracting a Super League regular season record crowd of 31,555 against the Wigan Warriors at the Nou Camp in 2019.

  18. W Hogg

    I see TheirABC (despite their extreme poverty under the SloMo regime) managed to get a crew down to Perpignan – not exactly a short cab from the Eiffel Tower. They spent most of their time bullying fans coming into the ground, trying to get them to condemn a guy for saying things that most probably haven’t actually even read. None took the bait – they couldn’t find a single person out of 9000 to say “I support the team but don’t want Izzy here.”

    Your taxes at work.

  19. Chris M

    Folau is still paying professional rugby and unrepentant homosexuals are still going to hell. Oh and ABC are still a collective of carping bitter leftards, some things never change.

  20. Chris M

    Catallaxy is filling the valuable role as the comments section for the ABC website, not at all odd that state-run media chooses not to post the thoughts and musings of the filthy proletariat Australian public.

  21. Wonderful to see this magnificent athlete once more playing the game he loves.

    Well, we could still forgive them, as long as they accept the 1.2 billion negative consequences (as in subtraction of dollars from their annual budget).

  23. Gyro Cadiz

    Good.

    Long may Folau be able to play. He’s a gifted player with the added advantage of causing the racist bigoted left’s heads to explode.

  24. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    I am so happy for him to be in his game again and getting a lot of crowd support for the skilled athlete that he is. It’s Australia’s loss over something quite avoidably silly.

  25. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Don’t look to the HRC to protect the human rights of anyone even vaguely conservative. It is a totally captured Gramsci’d outfit, best disbanded asap.

    Very good point.

    Ah, our ABC, losing one day, failing the next.

  28. Entropy

    Remember his original tweet quote that takes a bit of digging to find:
    “Warning. Drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators. Hell awaits you. Repent. Only Jesus saves.”
    “Those that are living in sin will end up in hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him.”

    It’s lovely that everyone is keen to show how much they can self appoint to speak up for the homosexual community, but how come no one comes forward for the other victims of his foul, white-adjacent privileged rant: the drunks, the adulterers, the liars, the fornicators, the thieves, the atheists and the idolators? Why does no one rush to speak on their behalf? Do they have no sense of how a fornicator feels to be so denigrated? Or the marginalised and oppressed Atheists? In truth these people are nothing more than Selective Social Justice Warriors (SS JW).

  29. mh

    All our politicians are going to hell.

    Great. Lying scumbags.

  30. Judge Dredd

    God bless Folau. He has the spiritual strength to overcome the barbs of the hateful.

  31. Dr Faustus

    The ‘Betfred’ Super League is struggling commercially – partly because League has a limited following in the UK and is crowded out by soccer, and partly because of the amazingly crap competition structure, which further limits the limited audience to a few towns in Yorkshire and Lancashire.

    Not sure that pandering to pooverie and political correctness is a red hot marketing strategy for the industrial Midlands fan base – but hiring Izzy Flower was an absolute stroke of genius.

    Controversy, raw passion, headlines, more bums on seats to see the Raging Monster Homophobe Try Scoring Machine. TV ratings up. Pie and lager sales up.

    Fooking magic, m’duck.

  32. Igor

    Tell that bigot, Lord Poofter to f%^& off.

  33. miltonf

    Even if they did it honestly, why do we even need a tax payer funded Australian in a London bureau telling us what’s going on in Europe? The internet renders them pointless.

  34. Mother Lode

    Izzy having just received a substantial pay out (as a result of a real grassroots fundraising campaign – TWICE!) and RA forced to admit firing a person for merely holding an opinion was wrong, the ABC stalks the man overseas and tries to get him fired.

    And this is how the ABC wants us to be perceived by the world.

    BTW, how is the freshly purged RA going? Cleaned of poisonous opinion I expect they are in better shape than ever.

  35. Mother Lode

    Lord Poofter

    Surely it is ‘Gaylord’.

  36. Iampeter

    I think it’s great that you can make endless leftist identity politics posts at Australia’s Leading Right Wing blog, without realising you’re even doing it, and have everyone support such posts because all the readers don’t realise what they’re supporting either.
    Really great stuff.

    Porter:

    Not just well done Izzy but well done Steve McNamara and Catalan Dragon management

    No, no, no.

    Steve McNamara (see video below) says “as an individual” he stands by this statement from club boss Bernard Guasch:

    “We want to give Israel a new opportunity to shine on the pitch. We do not support or agree with Israel’s previously expressed and controversial views which are based upon his sincerely held religious belief. We do not share or condone those views and we are totally committed to our club and our sport being open and welcoming to everyone. We do not believe that those views should be publicly expressed, especially by a high-profile sports person. We have a signed agreement with the RFL. Any transgression will trigger an immediate termination of Israel’s contract and a substantial fine for the club.”

    Is this really what victory looks like?

    It’s fantastic to see Izzy playing football again, but not if the price is as a Christian he cannot share his faith.

    Izzy doesn’t need the money. He shouldn’t be playing under these terms. No Christian should.

  38. Iampeter

    It’s fantastic to see Izzy playing football again, but not if the price is as a Christian he cannot share his faith.

    Um no.
    It’s RA who have had to pay a price for their supposed viewpoint, taken to court under lefty laws and taken for millions.
    And there’ll be a lot more violations of such nature if the Orwellian “Religious Discrimination laws” currently tabled in parliament go through.

    As usual, the real story is the staggering political illiteracy and leftism of conservatives, as they obliviously advocate the very violations of religious and speech freedoms, not to mention more fundamental capitalist principles, while claiming to oppose these violations.
