Israel Folau Street officially unveiled by Seamus O'Connor, Mayor Paul Pisasale, Israel Folau and Cr Paul Tully.


Israel Folau Street was officially unveiled at Goodna today.

He played his first Rugby League Test against New Zealand in 2007 in which he scored two tries.

Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale paid tribute to Israel Folau at today's opening and local Councillor Paul Tully said he was an inspiration to all young people as to what they could achieve.

 Israel Folau Street is located in the Cunningham Rise estate off Stuart St at Goodna.
