Fiji-born wing Semi Radradra has made it big after making a switch from rugby league to union.
According to Planet Rugby Newbies of the Year, Radradra is among 15 up-and-coming players who made it big this year.
After switching from rugby league, it feels as though Radradra has played professional rugby union for years, but his first match came in October 2017.
The outside back was immediately superb for Toulon and played a significant role in their Champions Cup quarter-final run, where they were unfortunate to give way to Munster.
Radradra then debuted for the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians in June and was excellent in the landmark victory over France.
Perhaps his performance against England for the Barbarians which lingers most in the mind.
On that day, the centre was unplayable as the Baa-baas put 63 points on the Red Rose.
