Parramatta Eels have just released a club statement on Semi Radradra and his exclusion from the Australian team.
Eels CEO Bevan Paul released the following on the
club’s official website, as Radradra was left out of the Four Nations squad when the team was announced on Tuesday.
“ Parramatta Eels continue to support and assist Semi Radradra and his ex-partner as they work through a difficult period.”
“We have been in contact with Semi since the announcement yesterday and he is looking forward to returning to the Club for preseason training in November.”
“The Club would like to emphasise that Semi has entered a plea of not guilty to the charges against him and he is entitled to the presumption of innocence.” “The Parramatta Eels have recently increased resources in the area of player welfare and support and implemented a number of initiatives to assist with the wellbeing of our players and their families.”
