NRL fans already plotting how Radradra will fit into Eels backline

As rumours of the return of Fijian Semi Radradra to rugby league continue to grow, fans of his former club Parramatta Eels are plotting his return.

The Bordeaux centre could be making a return to the NRL after the union World Cup in September to November.

While these are only rumours for now, a growing number of Eels fans on Twitter are already speculating what their team will look like next season with the 27-year-old back in their ranks. Fans are fantasising about a backline that will comprise of the likes of Blake Ferguson, Waqa Blake and Maika Sivo.

During his five years in rugby league, Radradra established himself as one of the best wingers in the game, with a scoring record of almost a try every game. He was twice named the Dally M Winger of the Year, and was in the 2015 Rugby League International Federation’s Team of the Year.

Given his prolific scoring success in the NRL, some have also suggested that he could break the try-scoring record should he return. This is despite two seasons in union, last season with Toulon.

Furthermore, other fans in the NRL are speculating a return to their team, such the St George Illawarra Dragons, Gold Coast Titans and the Sydney Roosters, which shows how in-demand the Fijian is. This is all due to a few rumours that have circulated over the past weeks.

This is what has been said:

Meanwhile, Radradra’s attention will be set firmly to the task at hand, as he is set to return to action with Fiji this week after injury. They host Canada this weekend in the Pacific Nations Cup, as part of their preparations for the World Cup, where they expect to make big shockwaves with a number of stars at their disposal such as Radradra.

Although these stories about a move back to league are in an embryonic stage, a big World Cup for Radradra may mean that there is huge demand for him in either code.
