Semi Radradra will create history when he runs out for Fiji at the Rugby World Cup.
Radradra will become the first player in the world to feature in three different rugby world cups.
In 2013 Semi Radradra featured for the Fiji Bati at the Rugby League World Cup, last year he made the Fiji 7s World Cup team and in next Saturday he will run out for the Flying Fijians at the Rugby World Cup making him the first to do so.
But Radradra is not letting that get into his head as the focus now is on the Wallabies and he says he is keen to play at the Rugby World Cup.
‘It will be tough to be playing in the world cup representing our country it’s an honor and privilege we want to start something new, something I haven’t done before but like I said we are really keen to play in the world cup in the next coming weeks’.
Radradra’s 2013 rugby league world cup Bati teammate Marika Koroibete is looking forward to the first match in Japan against the Flying Fijians.
Koroibete was named the player of the match against Samoa over the weekend and says a relative of his is in the Flying Fijians squad.
‘I got a couple of boys we are from the same area Lepani Botia we are from the same village he is a bit older than me and we’ll see how it goes in the world cup.
Koroibete is expected to start on the wing when the Wallabies play the Flying Fijians next Saturday.
