Fijians to clash

Aap
Sunday, June 29, 2014

SYDNEY - Newcastle winger Akuila Uate is still a young man himself but, today at Parramatta Stadium, he'll come up against a booming NRL star who has spent years idolising him.

The NRL has been spoilt by Fijian crowd pleasers for two decades, starting with Canberra's Noa Nadruku in the early 1990s, who then handed the baton to Brisbane's Lote Tuqiri.

Uate stormed onto the scene in 2008 and, at 26, has provided the inspiration for the latest Fijian try-scoring sensation, Parramatta's Semi Radradra.

The pair will clash today, albeit it from opposite wings, but Eels forward Joseph Paulo won't be surprised if two of the most blockbusting ball runners in the NRL go looking for each other.
