Gareth Thomas said he is “really upset” with that fact that the disgraced Australian rugby player is relocated to the club which has the majority of its matches in the UK. Thomas said he was disappointed by the decision to welcome Folau to the Super League through the foreign team as his own country cut ties with him for his widely known remarks about ‘hell as God’s plan on gay people”. “All I hope is that as much as Folau wanted his right to speak, then players and fans alike are aloud their right to respond,” the openly gay rugby star wrote on Twitter when Folau was announced to have signed the contract. He ensured that he is not going to watch any match of Folau’s new team. Catalans Dragons chairman Bernard Guasch said he wanted to give Folau “a new opportunity to shine on the pitch” by handing him a one-year contract, but warned that they do not share his anti-LGBT views and he would be terminated immediately if any hateful remark came from him during the term of the contract.
