    It follows a controversial tweet from Wallabies player Israel Folau last week, declaring he would be voting no, in-line with his Pentecostal Christian faith.

    ‘I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions, but personally, I will not support gay marriage,’ he wrote  to his 114,000 followers. 

    The post saw him become the subject of personal attacks, with people telling him it was a ‘selfish view’.  

    One person wrote: ‘Good rugby player. Bad human being. What a shame.’

    While a man, purporting to be a Wallabies fan said: ‘Thanks for f***ing up my ability to cheer for you ya d***head,’ he said.
