FNRL awaits confirmation on Radradra’s move

first_imgVodafone Fiji Bati assistant coach Josaia Rabele confirmed that they still have the Paramatta Eels’ winger in their list for the May Pacific Test against the Kumuls of Papua New Guinea. “We haven’t heard anything and we will keep his name for the May Test until we get confirmation, then we will have to look for someone else to replace Semi,” Rabele said. The Somosomo, Taveuni man’s agent George Christodolou told Fox Sports Radradra wants to try and claim the mantle as the world’s best winger and playing in the green and gold will provide the international platform to truly showcase his status. Now that he is eligible to switch status after he was given a residential visa by the Australian Government, Radradra’s move to the Kangaroos is expected to give Kangaroos coach and former Canberra Raiders’ centre Mal Meninga a wealth of selection options for the mid-season trans-Tasman Test match. Fox Sports reported that the winger’s agent said a deal is to be penned this week by NRL’s general manager of League Integration and Development Andrew Hill to stipulate the former Fiji 7s rep’s desire to play for the Kangaroos. Rabele, in an earlier interview said the move to be made by Radradra was something they would not be able to put a stop to, considering the player’s future, as the FNRL would not be able to put in the amount to be paid to Radradra should he don the green and gold jumper of the Kangaroos.last_img
