Semi Radradra makes impressive rugby debut for Toulon in French Top 14

SEMI Radradra has made an impressive start to his French rugby union stint in the Top 14 with a powerful performance for Toulon on Saturday.

The former Parramatta NRL star, who arrived in the south of France in late September, played the full 80 minutes on the left-wing as Toulon narrowly went down to rivals Bordeaux 30-27.

Radradra made seven runs for 61 metres, including three tackle busts and two clean breaks.

He also made two bone-crunching tackles that will no doubt put opponents on notice in upcoming matches.

Radradra officially signed a one-year deal with the French rugby powerhouse back in January and has an option for a second season.

Before jetting out to France, the Fijian sensation expressed his desire to return to the NRL with the Eels once his time is contract with Toulon is over.

Toulon currently sit in sixth on the Top 14 ladder, eight points behind Lyon, who currently field former Wallabies stars Liam Gill and Mike Harris.

The club underwent a clean-out over the off-season, releasing Australian quartet James O’Connor, Matt Giteau, Drew Mitchell, as well as Gill.

Former Cronulla fullback Ben Barba had a fleeting stint with the club in March before also being released.
