Asked if he would be comfortable taking the field again alongside Folau, Wallabies and NSW Waratahs captain flanker Hooper said: "In this current state and being here and talking about this as a rugby player, it makes it hard, it makes it difficult".
On Sunday Folau, Super Rugby's record try-scorer, told the Sydney Morning Herald he was ready for life without rugby, saying, "I live for God now".
The Wallabies star said that "hell awaits" for "drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators" on his Instagram last week.
Addressing the media at a Monday afternoon press conference Castle said Folau had failed to show remorse in her conversations with him since last week's Instagram post and said she wasn't sure if Folau would respond to the breach notice.
The two sides met on Friday with the dual global, who started his career in rugby league, expected to go through a code of conduct hearing amid reports that he may have a legal case for religious discrimination. Christianity is all about Jesus Christ.
Folau, 30, said he had no intention of retracting or apologizing for his comments about gay people which, he insisted were based on his Christian beliefs.
That came after he had been warned, formally and repeatedly about social media expectations after he made similar posts about a year ago.
"It's frustrating having to stand here because I can't speak for Israel, but it is part of the team celebrating our diversity and celebrating that in a respectful manner".
"I share it with love", he said.

Folau described the days since his posts as "tough" but said he wasn't surprised and took comfort in what the bible says.
"Obviously I love playing footy", he assured, "and if it goes down that path I'll definitely miss it".
It comes as Folau says it will be "God's will" if his rugby career is ended over his comments that gay people will go to hell unless they repent.
"The player has been formally warned about his future conduct", said Saracens in a statement.
Folau is unlikely to play for me again in an Australia shirt.
"At Saracens, we are one family, open to all, with the firm view that everyone should be treated equally with respect and humility", the statement added.
Hell awaits you. Repent!
"Whatever His will is, whether that's to continue playing or not, I'm more than happy to do what He wants me to do", Folau said.
Yesterday Luke Fenton, president of the Edinburgh-based Thebans, who were formed in 2002, said the club were moved by Hastings' intervention and said: "It shows that rugby is a sport that keeps itself in check from the top and makes us feel protected".
While many people, including some past and present players, chastised the 30-year-old for his posts, others said he was exercising his freedom of expression and sharing the beliefs of his faith - citing scripture that supports his comments.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
