Drew Mitchell has hit out at his former Wallabies teammate Israel Folau over a GoFundMe page that has already seen over $250 000 raised to contest Rugby Australia’s decision to terminate his contract over controversial social media posts.
YOU are in a fight that YOU chose to be in after YOU broke the terms of YOUR contract, the kids below are in a fight they NEVER wanted to be in & yet YOU think YOU deserve donations more than they do??!!

Earlier this week, Folau posted a lengthy video explaining the financial costs that he and his wife had incurred in legal battles with Rugby Australia.
Mitchell was not alone in questioning the request for donations from Folau, with another former player, Morgan Turinui highlighting the hypocrisy.
