With Israel Folau’s rugby career in tatters, wife Maria has hinted that her netball career is coming to an end as well.

Maria is almost certain to be named in the Silver Ferns’ squad for the upcoming World Cup on Thursday, but it might be the last time she pulls on the black dress.

The 32-year-old recently revealed that she’s nearing the end of her career, suggesting the World Cup could be her swansong.

“Let’s just say I’m very close to the end,” she said in an interview with Aussie great Catherine Cox on Channel Nine.

“It’s only been in the last couple of years where I’ve realised netball isn’t everything.

“Netball is a huge part of my life, but there’s other things in my life that have come into place that really need to take forward stead.”

Maria moved from New Zealand to play with the Adelaide Thunderbirds at the start of this season in order to be closer to Israel.

“It was hard because it’s a franchise that I hold very dear to my heart,” she said of her former Northern Mystics club.

“I’ve played for them for eight years now and before that we were called the Auckland Diamonds.”

‘No issue’
Israel’s four-year, $4 million contract was torn up on Friday in the wake of him posting a biblical quote which said homosexuals would go to hell unless they repented.

It was the second time Folau had sparked controversy through his social media accounts, also reprimanded for a similar post in 2018.

Maria has remained silent since Israel’s latest post, but publicly came out in support of her husband when he first sparked controversy last year.

“Stand with God no matter what … Don’t be afraid to stand up for the truth, even if that means you will be standing alone,” she wrote on Instagram.

由于以色列Folau的橄榄球生涯岌岌可危,妻子Maria暗示她的无板篮球生涯也即将结束。

玛丽亚几乎肯定会在周四举行的世界杯上被银色蕨类队的队员命名,但这可能是她最后一次穿上这件黑色连衣裙。

这位32岁的年轻人最近透露,她即将结束职业生涯,这表明世界杯可能是她的天鹅。

“我们只是说我已经接近尾声,”她在接受第九频道的澳大利亚伟大凯瑟琳考克斯采访时说道。

“只是在过去的几年里,我才意识到网球不是一切。

“无板篮球是我生命中很重要的一部分,但我生命中的其他事情已经到位,真正需要向前发展。”

为了更接近以色列,玛丽亚在本赛季开始时从新西兰搬到了阿德莱德雷鸟队。

“这很难,因为这是我非常珍视的特许经营权,”她谈到她的前北方神秘主义者俱乐部。

“我现在为他们效力了八年,在那之前我们被称为奥克兰钻石。”

‘没有任何问题’
以色列4年400万美元的合同在周五发布圣经引用之后被撕毁,该报道称同性恋者除非悔改,否则会下地狱。

这是Folau第二次通过他的社交媒体账户引发争议,并在2018年因类似职位而受到谴责。

玛丽亚自以色列的最新职位以来一直保持沉默,但在去年首次引发争议时公开表示支持她的丈夫。

“无论如何都要与上帝站在一起……不要害怕坚持真理,即使这意味着你将独自站立,”她在Instagram上写道。
