NEWS: Toulon have signed Fiji wing Semi Radradra from Australian Rugby League side Parramatta Eels, the French Top 14 club said on Monday.

The powerful 24-year-old was voted Player of the Year in the Australian National Rugby League in 2014 and 2015 and was also top try scorer for 2015.

He came through the ranks as a union player but has also played Sevens for Fiji and will join the 2014 French champions next season on a one-year deal with a one-year extension clause, the club said.

Toulon won the European Champions Cup three straight years and are rebuilding under Australian coach Mike Ford.
