Nicknamed ‘Semi Trailer’ due to his incredible power, Semi Radradra is one of the finest wingers in the game. He’s represented Fiji in both codes of the sport, and he’s also played for a number of the world’s top domestic sides.
Born 13 June 1992, Semi Radradra grew up playing rugby union. However, he was scouted by the Parramatta Eels while playing for Fiji’s national Rugby Sevens team in 2011. He then signed to play rugby league with the side at the beginning of his professional career.
Between 2013 and 2017, Semi Radradra played nearly 100 games for the Parramatta Eels. During this time, he earned a reputation as a prolific try scorer and won multiple individual awards. Internationally, during this stint in his career, he represented both Fiji (2013-14) and Australia (2016).
At the end of 2016, rumours began to circulate that Semi Radradra was leaving rugby league and switching codes. This was then confirmed in January 2017, when he announced that he was signing for Toulon. As a result, he left Australia at the end of the 2017 NRL season.
Since his switch to rugby union, Semi Radradra has become one of the best wingers in the game. After his season with Toulon, he has also represented Bordeaux and the Bristol Bears. Since 2018, he has also been a prominent member of the Fiji national team and the Fiji Rugby Sevens side. With the Sevens team, he won a gold medal at the 2020 Olympics.
With many seasons of elite rugby left ahead of him, we can’t wait to see what else Semi Radradra can achieve in the game.
