Radradra's domestic violence charges dropped


Domestic violence charges against Semi Radradra have been dropped, with Parramatta Eels promising to offer their support to the wing and his family.

Radradra, who will switch codes and move from the NRL to the Top 14 with Toulon at the end of the season, had been due in court in November regarding the case.

A warrant was issued for his arrest after he missed that hearing to tend to his ill father back in Fiji, but the charges have now been dropped.

"As with all legal matters, we have stated from the outset that the Parramatta Eels Rugby League Club would respect the legal process relating to the charges against Semi Radradra," Eels CEO Bernie Gurr said in a statement.

"Accordingly, we accept today's court verdict to drop charges against Semi for domestic violence.

"We will support Semi and his family in moving forward and are delighted he can now put his focus and energy on the 2017 season. The club will continue to provide welfare services to Semi and his family.

"The Parramatta Eels Club views domestic violence as a very serious issue and is committed to taking a strong stance against domestic violence. We are dedicated to building a successful club, with all our decisions and behaviours governed by our core values of integrity, respect and excellence."
