    This from former Wallaby Drew Mitchell's twitter feed

    YOU are in a fight that YOU chose to be in after YOU broke the terms of YOUR contract, the kids below are in a fight they NEVER wanted to be in & yet YOU think YOU deserve donations more than they do??!! It’s no longer about religion, it’s about YOU and YOUR greed.

    In a country of 25 million, 52% of which identify as "Christian", 6000 is **** all... its one in every 2166 Christians... that's not very many gullible fools to be easily conned into parting with their money. If FOlau really had God on his side, I would expect Australian Christians to be falling over themselves to donate - he ought to have reached his $3m goal in the first hour.

    What you also might notice is that it kicked off with some massive anonymous donations, and there are also users who are donating the minimum $5 so that they can use their usernames to have a go at Folau

    $5 - Proud To Be Gay As

    $5 - davidkoresh gasmaskforsale

    $5 - Israelisa MassiveC*nt

    $5 - IsraelChangedReligions ToSuitHisBankAccount

    Just to put some perspective on this

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/...ael-folau?rm=m

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/opinio...-fund-yourself


    And if you didn't think Folau was a money grubbing prick already, this might yet change your mind....

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby....portfolio?rm=m

    He sits on an almost $6 million property portfolio, and then has the sheer audacity to feign poverty and appeal to gullible chumps for donations so that he can sue Rugby Australia for $10 million after he stated implicitly that if he thought he was harming rugby, he would walk away from the game and his contract.

    So much for the Christian values that Folau purports to represent

    Remember your Bible Mr Folau, particularly Timothy 6:7 "For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out."

    In this article lots of donors talk about why they donate

    It's a mixture of Christian homophobes who share IF values, and free speech enthusiasts (I dont like what you say but defend your right to say it etc etc)

    I didn't see any employment law buffs

    In either case, they call themselves a "silent majority" but if they were, at least in Australia, there would be millions of donors, (more than 12.3 million). The reality is that they are a pitiful bunch of homophobes and bigots.

    But all she did was share his GoFundMe page. She did not, and has not, shared the Instagram post that got Folau in trouble.

    I am told by a reliable source that it has been made very clear to her that if she does that, her Silver Ferns Netball career will be over.
