Ex-Parramatta Eel Semi Radradra named in Fiji rugby side

Rugby


Former NRL star winger Semi Radradra is making moves to play in next year’s Rugby World Cup after being named in the Fijian national team for the 2018 Pacific Nations Cup.

The ex-Parramatta Eels flyer has also declared his availability to represent the Fijian national sevens team at July’s Rugby Sevens World Cup.

Having represented Fiji in both codes at under-20s level, the 25-year-old is in his first season with Toulon in the French Top 14 after six years playing rugby league.

He also represented the Kangaroos in one rugby league Test in 2016 after qualifying through residency.

Radradra appears to have no interest in a return to the NRL, in February signing a two-year deal with French first- division rival Bordeaux.

Fiji will play home Tests against Samoa, Georgia and Tonga in June.

The Eels have struggled this season without Radradra, who in 2015 and 2017 was the club’s leading try scorer.
