The national coach says Radradra’s experience and professionalism are vital for the team.

“Semi was just finishing up a tournament at home and I gave him that opportunity so he was the only one that joined late, everyone else have been here from the start and training well.”

Byrne says there are no injury concerns after Georgia match last week and he’s thankful that Caleb Muntz is now running well.

The Flying Fijians will travel to the US on the weekend before playing the All Blacks next Saturday.
