Israel Folau's code of conduct panelists named

The panel for Israel Folau's code of conduct hearing has been confirmed, with John West QC the chair.

Rugby Australia's Kate Eastman SC and Rugby Union Players' Association representative John Boultbee AM are the other panellists as Folau fights to save his career.

The three-time John Eales Medallist requested the hearing, expected to take place next week, after being issued with a "high level" breach of contract notice from RA following a series of homophobic social media posts.
