Semi Radradra is one step closer to featuring for the Fiji Sevens, training with the side ahead of the London Sevens.

Radradra, who was man-of-the-match in the Barbarians' huge win over England last weekend, has made no secret of his ambitions to be a part of Fiji's Sevens World Cup plans and also the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Both the ex-NRL superstar and his Toulon teammate Josua Tuisova, are in the mix to be part of the 12 for the Sevens this weekend, spotted training with the side.

Holding Slide for rugby.com.auTuisova was a part of the 2016 Rio Olympics squad that won a gold medal.

Fiji will confirm its Sevens squad on Thursday, and fijivillage.com had reported earlier this week that coach Gareth Baber was yet to decide whether the pair will play.

Radradra has already been named in Fiji's Pacific Nations Cup squad, putting him right in the frame for next year's Rugby World Cup, with John McKee keen to see the speedster in a Test.

Fiji already has a commanding lead in the 2017-18 World Series, with a win or a second-place in London securing them another World Series title.

The Pacific Island nation kicks off its Pacific Nations Cup campaign on June 9 against Samoa.
