Billy Vunipola has been handed a formal warning by the RFU over his controversial social media comments in support of homophobic remarks made by Israel Folau.
The England No 8 was criticised for 'liking' a post from Folau in which the Australian full-back said that homosexuals and other 'sinners' were destined for 'hell', before commenting that 'man was made for woman to procreate'.
Folau has since been sacked by Rugby Australia for his second anti-gay social media posting this year and Vunipola received a formal warning from his Gallagher Premiership employers Saracens.
