Cape Town - All Black scrumhalf TJ Perenara is the latest high-profile rugby player to voice his concern at Israel Folau's comments on homosexuality.

Folau, not for the first time, caused a stir earlier in the month when he suggested that gay people were destined to go to hell

His comments caused outrage in the rugby community with the Waratahs taking disciplinary action against the Wallabies fullback. 

On Tuesday, Chiefs scrumhalf Brad Weber took to Twitter to voice his disgust at Folau's comments while, on Thursday, Perenara had his say. 

In a series of tweets, Perenara encouraged young individuals struggling with their identity to be themselves. 

He also slammed Folau's public stance on homosexuality.

"There is no justification for such harmful comments," he wrote.
