Former Wallabies halfback Nic White has joined a handful of high-profitle voices to criticise Israel Folau's comments on homosexuality.

Chiefs and one-Test All Blacks nine Brad Weber took to Twitter to condemn Folau's position on Monday night, and fellow All Black TJ Perenara seconded his fellow Kiwi's tweets.

White took to social media on Thursday morning, to voice his support for the duo's views. 

In a series of tweets on Wednesday night, Perenara also revealed he had donated $500 to New Zealand's gay rugby team, the New Zealand Falcons for their Bingham Cup campaign.

Folau has had no shortage of support since publishing a piece for PlayersVoice, with some current Wallabies voicing their support for their teammate, including Samu Kerevi and Curtis Rona.

The 29-year-old has not been sanctioned for his comments on Instagram, where he said God's plan for gay people was ,'HELL...unless they repent their sins and turn to God".
