Former Wales rugby captain Gareth Thomas and English prop Joe Marler have hit back at Israel Folau after the Wallabies fullback's latest anti-gay social media comments.
But it's not the first time Folau has been condemned for his extreme views after a similar anti-gay outburst on social media past year led to a warning.
On Wednesday night, Folau took to Instagram to post an image with a warning that "those that are living in Sin will end up in Hell unless you repent" alongside an image telling "homosexuals" to repent.
Folau also took to Twitter yesterday to share his thoughts on Tasmania allowing gender to be optional on birth certificates.
"He got away with it the first time, you would like to think that maybe the RA (Rugby Australia) might actually stand up and do something", Ella told SBS News.

The code-hopping superstar faces sanctioning - and possibly even having his multi-million-dollar four-year contract torn up - after the governing body condemned his posts as "unacceptable".

Meanwhile, on Instagram, the WaratahsSuper Rugby star warned sinners would be going to hell unless they repented.
The 73-cap Australia worldwide was previous year warned for making homophobic comments on social media, which he explained were based on his religious beliefs.

Folau, who is married to Silver Ferns shooter Maria Folau (nee Tutaia), made the comment in reply to a question on an image he posted on Instagram which showed "God's plan".
The Wallabies star was embroiled in a huge scandal previous year after voicing his rigid stance on same-sex relationships, stating that gay people will go to hell "unless they repent of their sins and turn to God".
