Sivo can sing like Radradra: Michael Jennings

Maika Sivo, Michael Jennings and Semi Radradra
For two years, NRL star Michael Jennings used to listen to Semi Radradra sing in Fijian while playing on the wing for Parramatta.
Radradra may have since traded his blue and gold jersey for the claret and white of Bordeaux in the years since but in Maika Sivo, Jennings is back listening to the same Fijian tunes.
The 25-year-old hasn’t quite emulated the long range, jaw-dropping performances Radradra used to regularly pull off before jetting to France but has scored nine tries in 11 appearances this season.
Jennings says he can see the similarities between Radradra and Sivo, too.
Unfortunately for Sivo, his natural on-field talents haven’t quite translated off the field.
He has failed his learner driver licence test twice since arriving in Sydney.
That’s a blemish which provokes instant laughter from Jennings when asked if he was aware of the repeat failures.
Jennings says Sivo’s the best, he’s fresh, he’s straight from Fiji.
Luckily for Sivo and Eels fans alike, a driver’s licence isn’t required to fire on the field.
Parramatta will need the flying Sivo at his best when they head to Cronulla on Saturday afternoon.
