Flying Fijians star centre, Semi Radradra is starting to regain his lost form after coming back from injury.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games gold medallist starred for Bristol Bears as they romped to a 52-21 win over Scarlets in the Heineken Champions Cup on Saturday.

Radradra scored two tries and had a hand in several other tries. In the second half substitute winger, Siva Naulago, showed his class by scoring a late try.

It was tough luck for Clermont’s winger Alivereti Raka who scored a try but it was not enough as they were beaten 34-31 by Ul­ster.

Towards the end of the first half, Raka received a yellow card for not rolling away with Ulster a metre short of the try line. Clermont rested flanker Peceli Yato and prop Peni Ravai.

In other results, La Rochelle without Leva­ni Botia and Eneriko Buliruarua beat Glas­gow Warriors 38-30 while Leinster thrashed a hapless Bath side 64-7.

European Challenge Cup

Lanky Edinburgh forward Mesulame Ku­navula played well at No.8 as they romped with a 66-3 win over Brive on Friday night.

The Flying Fijians openside flanker stood in for the injured Viliame Mata and did not disappoint.

From an Edinburgh move, he skilfully of­floaded to Jamie Ritchie to score one of the best tries of the match. For Brive, they rested their Fijian players for the excep­tion of Sevania Galala who played at sec­ond five-eight.

Tries to Adrea Cocagi and Filipo Nakosi were not enough as Castres lost 36-33 to the Harlequins. The Fijians put on an im­pressive performance and were rewarded with their tries.

Vilimoni Botitu and Josaia Raisuqe came in as substitutes for Castres. Per­pignan with winger Eddie Sawailau were walloped 68-19 by Gloucester.

Other matches were cancelled due to players being tested positive to COVID-19.
