Israel Folau set to make Catalans Dragons debut

Rugby

Israel Folau is set to make his Catalans Dragons debut against Castleford in the Super League on Saturday.

Coach Steve McNamara named his 21-man squad on Thursday for the game at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium with Folau included at No. 4.

Folau wasn’t named in either squad for the two games the Dragons have played since his arrival.

The former rugby union player has not played rugby since last April and had his contract with Rugby Australia terminated in May when he posted on social media that hell awaits “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers” and other groups.

His signing with the Calatans Dragons was met with anger by other teams with Super League chief executive Robert Elstone calling it a “sad day”.

Following a meeting with clubs on the issue, the league took steps to ensure that they can intervene in future controversial signings.
