Radradra confirmed for Olympics

Bristol Bears centre Semi Radradra has been confirmed to play for Fiji in the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan next month.

The 29-year-old has not been included in the Flying Fijians 33-member squad for the two test matches against the All Blacks as he will not be able to make it in time for 14 days’ mandatory quarantine.

Radradra will miss next week's Oceania 7s in Townsville, Australia due to club commitments but will join the team's training camp in Tokyo before the Games.

Meanwhile Vilimoni Botitu is highly likely to miss the Olympics as he has been named as one of the centres by Coach Vern Cotter for the matches in New Zealand next month.
