'He's not in a fight for his life' - Sports host hits out at Folau over crowdfunding

Sports commentator Terry Kennedy says it's "abhorrent" that embattled ex-Wallabies star Israel Folau tried to crowd found millions for legal fees.

Yesterday GoFundMe pulled Folau's fundraising page and is issuing refunds to all his donors, saying the campaign breached its terms of service.

At the time he launched the crowfounding campaign, Folau said he was in a fight for his life - something Kennedy strongly objects to. 

A new fundraising site has been launched by the Australian Christian Lobby to help Israel Folau raise money in his legal fight against Rugby Australia after GoFundMe pulled his crowdfunding campaign from its website.
