Sonny Bill Williams - a devout Muslim - has pointedly gone out of his way display his religiosity. The hulking centre famously taped over two Investec logos on his Blues shirt last year, successfully arguing he had a right to do so as a conscientious objector.
“My objection to wearing clothing that markets banks, alcohol and gambling
companies is central to my religious beliefs, and it is important to me to have been granted this exemption," said Williams at the time.
While we don't know the exact nature of his religious beliefs around homosexuality, it's probably not an enormous leap to speculate that as a devout Muslim, his views might not be hugely dissimilar to that of Folau's as a devout Christian.
What we can say is that he has already courted criticism for his friendship with Zimbabwean born Muslim cleric Mufti Ismail Menk.
enk had been banned from speaking at a number of UK Universities and had at one stage described homosexuals as 'filthy' and suggested that they were lower than animals. The cleric has since retracted those remarks, saying they were based on a 'misguided notion'.
In January 2017 Williams' role as a BMW ambassador was questioned - according to Newsroom.co.nz - on the back of complaints about the player's association with the controversial cleric. Menk - for his part - described Sonny Bill as a 'wonderful person' and someone who he knew at 'close range'.
