Fiji’s Semi Radradra Exits The World Cup With Some Of The Best Stats We’ve Ever Seen
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
There have been some serious standout performances at the Rugby World Cup so far but no one has lit up Japan quite like Fiji’s Semi Radradra.
The 27-year old was twice named Man of the Match with incredible performances against Georgia and Wales in the pool stages. He made Rugby World Cup history in the Georgia game by becoming the first player from a non-Tier One nation to be directly involved in five tries in a single World Cup game.
His performance’s alone, however, weren’t enough for Fiji to go through and his World Cup ends at the pool stages. But he leaves the tournament with some pretty incredible stats that should ensure he’s in everyone’s team of the tournament.
He currently tops the charts in four key areas at the World Cup – metres made (416), carries (63), defenders beaten (29) and offloads (11).
Those stats are simply incredible. What an absolute baller. Bordeaux will find it hard to hold onto this man. Oh, and we forgot to mention he can also tackle pretty damn hard. Looks at this for a hit on Liam Williams.
Monster hit from Radradra! 😮#RWC2019

Fiji's Semi Radradra finished his RWC top of four different categories of attacking stats. He was superb again today and surely a player who should be in most team of the tournament selections. pic.twitter.com/yMx7GA9cpm
