Semi to play his first union test

Daily Mercury - - SPORT -

RUGBY UNION: For­mer NRL star Semi Radradra will make his rugby union Test debut for Fiji in their Pa­cific Na­tions Cup clash with Georgia in Suva to­mor­row.

Formerly a stand­out on the wing for the Par­ra­matta Eels, Radradra plays club rugby for Toulon in France.

Fiji coach John McKee said Radradra, named to start at out­side cen­tre, had been in out­stand­ing form for Toulon in the Top 14 club com­pe­ti­tion this sea­son and for the Bar­bar­ians team that beat Eng­land at Twick­en­ham.

Radradra also scored a scin­til­lat­ing try at the Lon­don Sevens two weeks ago on the way to Fiji win­ning the tour­na­ment.
