Former Ratu Kadavulevu School Under 18 rugby centre Solomoni Naiduki has been signed by the NRL club Parramatta Eels on a three-year deal.
The Eels believed they have signed a powerhouse winger who they hope could develop into the next Semi Radradra.
9 News.com reports, the club has missed Radradra’s pace and power since he defected to European rugby union.
An 18-year-old who prefers playing in the centres, Naiduki is rated as one of the best finishers in Fijian schoolboy rugby in recent years.
Local rugby authorities were fuming at his decision to defect to the league and he is expected to learn his craft on the wing with the Eels.
