Dyldam Parramatta Eels winger Semi Radradra says the Blue and Gold can expect a tough clash against the Melbourne Storm this Monday night, predicting Fijian wingers Suliasi Vunivalu and Marika Koroibete the danger men.

Despite coming up against a formidable Storm side, Radradra remains confident.

“It will be a pretty tough game for us. They are a good team,” Radradra said.

“We have to try and match it with them and play well. If we stick to our game plan, and have some good game management, hopefully we can come away with the win.”

“They are very tough players. They are very strong runners, fast and quick,” Radradra said of the flying Fijian wingers.

“It will be a pretty tough line up with them in the side, but hopefully we come away the better side on the weekend.”

The Blue and Gold spirits were boosted today, with Eels halfback Kieran Foran returning to training.

“It is good to have him [Foran] back today,” Radradra said.

“Everyone is happy to have him back.”

“He brings a lot of energy and we are looking forward to playing with him this week.”

And with Jarryd Hayne making headlines this week, in hopes of making the Fijian Sevens side to play in the Rio Olympics, Radradra wished his former teammate plenty of success.

“If he makes the team, they will be pretty good,” Radradra said.

“We know Haynesy, he is a good player, very talented and he will do whatever he can do be picked for the team.”
