Bordeaux and Fiji utility back Semi Radradra has ruled out a potential return to rugby league, stating that the NRL is behind him.
The 27-year-old Fijian star has been the subject of much speculation regarding where he will be playing next year following his sensational World Cup campaign in Japan, and his current contract expiring at Bordeaux.
Multiple reports suggest that a return to the NRL was imminent due to homesickness and a disliking to the cold French weather.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs believed to be the frontrunners for his signature, while the Eels and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs were also thought to be in contention.
“I know there are a lot of rumours going on and talking about a return to [rugby league], but a return to [rugby league] is not an option for me,” Radradra said in an interview with French newspaper Sud Ouest.
“I already proved myself in [rugby league] … the NRL is behind me, it’s over. I already proved that I was one of the best Fijians in this league.

“Playing [rugby union] pleases me, I love it more and more. I’m in a different environment … I still have a lot to learn and things to prove.
When questioned about where his next destination will be, the 10-test international didn’t give an inch.
“Nobody knows,” he said.
“This is the last year of my contract with Bordeaux, my agent is looking after the rest. He will look at the bet offers and we will see. I’m only focused on rugby.
