Three years after his departure for England and Bristol, Semi Radradra (30) will as planned make his big comeback in the Top 14. But it will not be in Bordeaux-Bègles, as had been anticipated for a time. The captain of Fiji has given his agreement to Lyon, Le Progrès tells us this Thursday.
The “TGV” Radradra is back in France. As expected, the explosive Fijian winger or center whose dazzling accelerations no one in Gironde or Var has forgotten will return to the Top 14 next season. Semi Radradra had naturally been announced at Bordeaux-Bègles, where he had particularly left good memories and with whom he had been in contact for a time. But the UBB finally managed to attract one of the new stars of the XV of France Damian Penaud in its nets and it is in Lyon that the captain of Fiji will settle down at the start of the school year, for what will constitute his third French club. after debuts in France in Toulon during the 2017-2018 season. Le Progrès thus revealed on Thursday that the LOU had the successor to Josua Tuisova, who left for Racing 92, and that it was Radradra. The latter even already had an unofficial medical examination on January 22, we learn from Le Progrès, which adds that the Fijian who set sail for the Premiership and Bristol (England) three years ago has already given his agreement to the Lyon club. and that only his signature on the contract is now missing from the LOU to be able to formalize this magnificent coup.
A two-year contract awaits Radradra
Still according to the same source, the former UBB dragster, a real attraction in his own right, will commit for the next two seasons in favor of the LOU, to which he will therefore be linked until 2025. Radradra will not be not the only renowned winger to join the Rhône next season. Le Progrès thus believes that the current 7th in the Top 14 ranking, tied on points with 5th Bordeaux-Bègles and 6th Bayonne, also wishes the arrival for the coming year of another major international winger. . The LOU, which already shows serious ambitions this year, should look great to attack the new season.
