Israel Folau's contract has been terminated by Rugby Australia after he said "hell awaits" gay people in a social media post.

The full-back, 30, was sacked in April but requested a hearing, which was heard by a three-person panel.

The panel found him guilty of a "high level breach" of RA's player code of conduct and upheld the dismissal.

Folau, who had a RA deal until 2022, has 72 hours to appeal against the ruling and is considering his options.

A major sponsor is to voice concerns to rugby club London Irish over the signing of former Ulster and Ireland fly-half Paddy Jackson.

Diageo, which owns Guinness and is the team's main sponsor, said his signing was "not consistent with our values".

Jackson was found not guilty of rape last year, but had his contract revoked by the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU).

London Irish confirmed they are in "ongoing dialogue" with sponsors.
