Israel Folau: Izzy gone? Folau's Instagram mystery

Just one day before he marches into court to begin formal proceedings in his unlawful sacking suit against Rugby Australia, Israel Folau has apparently subbed himself off the internet by sending his social media accounts to the bin.

RA terminated Folau's multimillion-dollar contract over a social media post in which he paraphrased a Bible passage, saying "drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters" would go to hell unless they repented.

Instagram was the platform on which the 73-test dual worldwide and conservative Christian published much of his religious messaging, including the April 10 post for which he was sacked by Rugby Australia.

A largely administrative directions hearing is scheduled at the Federal Circuit Court in Melbourne on Tuesday, where lawyers from each side will discuss the next steps in the case.

Any person heading to Folau's Twitter or Instagram accounts will be met with messages stating the accounts no longer exist.

Chase Bank Forgives All Credit Card Debt for Customers in Canada
It's unclear how many of Chase's Canadian credit card customers had their debt erased or how much money the bank wrote off. In particular, to this development - Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) might look into the taxability factor of this windfall.

Shortly thereafter, Folau's Twitter account also disappeared, seemingly scrubbed clean as Folau and his team prepare to enter what shapes as a very large legal battle tomorrow.

The former Wallaby launched legal action against Rugby Australia and the Waratahs earlier this month, demanding an apology, compensation and the right to play again after he was sacked.

Folau opted not to appeal and mediation attempts failed, prompting him to take the highly divisive unfair dismissal case, which has drawn support from conservatives and outrage elsewhere, to the courts.

More than 20,000 people have donated about $2.2 million to help fund Folau's legal fight through a campaign page set up by the Australian Christian Lobby.
