Radradra bound for Bordeaux

The former Fiji and Australia rugby league international signed a one-year deal with Toulon for the current campaign after quitting NRL side Parramatta Eels to switch codes.

Radradra, who can operate on the wing or as a centre, will be lining up against the three-time European champions next season after signing a two-year deal with Bordeaux.

The 25-year-old powerhouse scored two tries in Toulon's 36-12 victory over his future employers at Stade Mayol last weekend. 

NZR deny Tuivasa-Sheck move

RNZ understands the deal is in the works, with some senior Warriors are aware of the move, despite Tuivasa-Sheck not having told the team.

However New Zealand Rugby says they haven't entered formal discussions with Tuivasa-Sheck or his agent.

Worcester Warriors 25-46 Bath

Tries from flankers Paul Grant and Matt Garvey either side of half time put the visitors in control before England's Anthony Watson raced in to score.

David Denton, Joe Taufet'ee and Perry Humphreys all scored second-half tries for Worcester.

But lock James Phillips and two tries for Kahn Fotuali'i sealed Bath's winning bonus point.

After Rhys Priestland's opening two penalties inside the first 14 minutes, Chris Pennell got Warriors back in the game when he finally slotted one home from close to the halfway line having missed his first two attempts at goal.

Work to do for Fiji 7s

The Fijians finished fourth in the opening round in Dubai and fifth a week later in Cape Town.

On both occasions their Cup run was ended by South Africa, (12-7) in the semi and (31-26) quarter finals respectively.

"We had a bad loss against Canada in the pool stages in Cape Town which took a bit of a shine off the week but generally we've moved in the right direction," reflected Gareth Baber.

Samoa captain adamant team never wanted handouts

England prop Mako Vunipola had suggested giving a portion of their £22,000 individual fee towards Samoa’s players, who will earn £650 from the game at Twickenham. The idea initially received widespread support within the squad, however the senior player group decided that a donation could have inflamed a delicate stand-off between the Samoa Rugby Union and World Rugby. 

Romania defeat Samoa

The previous and only victory against the Samoan took place in Bucharest in October 1989. 

The match played at the Arc de Triomphe stadium in Bucharest had two completely discrete parts: in the first Manu Samoa dominated totally, and after the break the Stejarii returned to strength, as they did two years ago at the World Cup in front of Canada when they were remounted from 0 to 15 to 17 to 15.

Australian channel apologises for 'racist' rugby video

The clip, on the popular Fox Sports Matty Johns Show, showed small children attempting to pronounce the 'funniest' player names in the NRL (National Rugby League), most of which being Pacific Islander surnames, 9News network reports.

But the "Footy Kids in Cars" video has not gone down well with players. Former Samoa international Frank Puletua told 9News he was "disappointed that a segment like that got to air without any sort of thought about how it might be perceived by people in Pacific Island league communities."

Fiji's Olympic 7s success remembered one year on

Fiji thrashed Great Britain 43-7 in the first ever Olympic sevens final a year ago today to win the country's first ever medal at the Summer Games.

Ryan said it was an incredible journey and in many ways it already felt like a lifetime ago.

"These days on social media you get your Facebook where you wake up and suddenly get a memory that Facebook wants to share with you from a year ago and I've been getting those regularly of videos of me getting on the plan to the training camp in Chile and various other ones," he said.

Warriors leave Perth empty handed again

The result was only the beginning of the New Zealand based team's woes, as they endured a nightmare day in Perth.

Veteran Ryan Hoffman and young forward Albert Vete both face extended stints on the sidelines after copping broken bones.

Vete broke his arm in the first half of the loss, while Hoffman didn't even get on the field.

The 33-year-old's final season at the Warriors will now be heavily shortened after he broke a metatarsal bone in his foot while stretching at the team hotel.

Tigers pounce after Salford's Super League slip-up

Tigers coach Daryl Powell chose to rest some of his frontline players against St Helens after the excesses of two games in four days last weekend and his fringe prospects proved equal to the task in a 16-12 victory at The Jungle.

First-half tries from Mark Percival and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook had the Saints 12-4 up at the interval and on the way to completing a double over the Tigers.

But the hosts clocked up 12 unanswered points in the second period to edge a testing encounter, with Mike McMeeken and Tom Holmes touching down.
