Semi Radradra has shown the Premiership exactly what he's capable of, and it's terrifying

Bristol Bears’ impressive 33-24 win over Gloucester on Friday night featured an eye-catching performance from Fijian superstar Semi Radradra in the midfield, as he played a big part in at least two tries and scored one of his own.

The bonus-point win in the west country derby was inspired by the Fijian back, who set up tries for Max Malins and Henry Purdy and powered over for his own later in the first half.

His performance against Saracens last week was fairly low-key but the 28-year-old former Toulon back has now well and truly made his mark in the Premiership.

Director of Rugby Pat Lam told BBC Radio Bristol that he was satisfied with the win but felt that the second half performance could have been better.

“I am pleased we got the five points and I appreciate the effort from the guys but we certainly took the foot off the pedal.

“There were some good performances out there, including from Semi, but the feeling in the changing room is a little bit flat as we let them off the hook a bit.”

Gloucester head coach George Skivington admitted how impressed even he was by Radradra.

“He is pretty special, isn’t he? There were two or three showings of what he’s made of. He is an outstanding player.”

The win was Bristol’s first at Kingsholm in 14 years.
