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.

"We are taking a keen interest on the findings of Rugby Australia's Integrity Unit when they meet tonight and applaud the union for taking the stance that these kinds of comments are unacceptable".

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".

"It does not represent the values of the sport and is disrespectful to members of the Rugby community", the statement read.

According to rugby.com.au, there was a reported clause in Folau's contract negotiations past year that was specific to his use of social media.

Rather than using words, he responded to Folau's posts with tweets featuring pictures of men kissing.

Meanwhile, on Instagram, the Waratahs Super 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.

"There's no doubt we've had conversations with Izzy about continuing to present his views in a respectful way".

"Everyone knows his point of view, right? He is walking the line, we'll continue the dialogue with him", Castle told Fox Sports' Kick & Chase program in May 2018. "His continued spread of religious fanactical bigotry is beyond unsafe to the values of the game, and to the new inclusive society we are working so hard to build", Thomson, who played 29 tests for the All Blacks between 2008 and 2012, posted on Twitter.

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".
