Folau hostile to gay column made a beeline for court as intervention comes up short

Fallen star Israel Folau and Rugby Australia look set out toward a long and expensive court fight over his sacking for homophobic remarks after last-jettison pacification talks crumbled Friday.

"Very disillusioned by the result today," said the passionately religious Folau. "I'd like to thank those who've upheld me all through this time. I'll keep on going to bat for the opportunities all things considered."

The case is currently expected to make a beeline for the Federal Court and could conceivably delay for quite a long time.
