Semi Radradra has been included in Team Fiji men’s 7s squad for the 2018 Commonwealth Games which will be held at the Gold Coast on April 4-15.

The Somosomo, Taveuni native is in the extended 45- member squad which was submitted to the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) alongside other overseas based players like Josua Tuisova, Semi Kunatani, Nikola Matawalu, Leone Nakarawa, Kitione Taliga, Masivesi Dakuwaqa,Peceli Nacebe,Viliame Mata  and former captain Osea Kolinisau.

Radradra played for the Fijian U20 in 2011 and later in the same year donned the national jumper at the Gold Coast where he was scouted by Parramatta Eels.

Also in the squad are former Pacific sprint champion Banuve Tabakaucoro and Batinisavu Uluiyata.

However, Fiji Airways Fijian 7s head coach Gareth Baber has earlier stated that there is no confirmation on the inclusion of the overseas based players in the team.

“Overseas clubs are under no obligation to release players,” Baber said.

Team Fiji chef de mission Patrick Bower confirmed the 12 sporting federations will confirm their final team by March 7.

“There is a possibility that they could take in extra players and the expenses will come out from the Team Fiji budget,” Bower said.
