VIDEO: Semi Radradra gets nailed by son of Wallaby legend
File under ‘Something you don’t see every day’. Son of rugby legend and former Australian international Michael Lynagh, absolutely nails Semi Radradra, who’s probably the best centre in world rugby.
It’s certainly something that the Fijian maestro is not used to having done to him.
Louis made his senior Quins debut from the bench in the Gallagher Premiership away to Leicester Tigers in the last game of the 2019/20 season, going on to make his mark as a starter for the first time this season. Before his Quins debut, Lynagh represented England at U16, U18 and U19 level.
Lynagh, 20, has taken his opportunities this season with both hands, competing against the likes of senior players Mike Brown, Nathan Earle, Cadan Murley, Aaron Morris, Ross Chisholm and Tyrone Green.
As Christy Doran wrote on Twitter: “Louis Lynagh – the son of Wallabies captain and World Cup-winner, Michael – putting former NRL flyer Semi Radradra on his backside.
“Louis scored a try in Harlequins’ epic come-from-behind semi-final victory over Bristol, as they overturned a 28-0 deficit to win 43-36”

Radradra averaged 100m a game at the 2019 Rugby World Cup, lighting up the competition pool stages with a string of sensational displays, including a brace against Georgia.
During his time in the Australian NRL (National Rugby League), Radradra was named Dally M winger of the year for two seasons in a row, scoring 82 tries in 94 games for Parramatta Eels.
Radradra has enjoyed a stellar club career so far, representing Toulon, Bristol Bears and Bordeaux in the French Top 14, following his switch from the NRL in 2016.
