Folau launched legal action against Rugby Australia (RA) and the Waratahs when his four-year contract was terminated in May after he posted a meme on social media that said hell awaited homosexuals and other groups.

The settlement comes after Folau and RA went into the last phase of mediation at the Federal Circuit Court on Monday before the case was due to go to trial in February.
