Israel Folau quits the Giants and AFL

Folau left NRL club the Brisbane Broncos at the end 2010 to join the AFL on a four-year deal worth approximately $6 million.

The Giants have called a press conference with Folau, coach Kevin Sheedy and CEO David Matthews at 4pm, where it is expected it will be announced that he will be switching codes again.

As recently as July, Folau refuted claims he was to switch back to his original sport.

At that time, industry sources confirmed he would take a massive pay cut if he were to cross back to rugby league.
