He added: “Thank You Jesus for dying on the cross for me. I love you Jesus.”

Kerevi’s post received mixed reactions. Some fans supported him while some questioned whether he would publicly declare his support for gay Australians in the same way.

One fan wrote: “I know a lot of gay kids and adults in our sport would love to hear a rugby leader like you say you love and respect them for who they are – are you willing to endorse that message?”

Kerevi later ”apologized” to his fans for upsetting them with his Easter post.

In the post, the Fijian-born sport star wrote ” I apologize to anyone that I have offended in giving praise to our God on a weekend that we take off to celebrate his sacrifice for you and I”.

  1. Mr Keveri, God bless you, Continue to Love Jesus, Continue to serve Him, We are praying for you and every Christian sportsman and woman, we are praying for those who have a problem with Jesus, Why ? Because there is POWER in His NAME One love from Jamaica.

  2. God bless you and keep on loving Jesus and I feel that you shouldn’t have apologized for saying that because it’s not that you forced anyone else to love Jesus or to say it.

  3. The title of the post is misleading – he was not forced to apologise for what he said, he chose to apologise if anyone was offended – he did not retract what he said in the apology, he stands by it. Praise God.
