Semi Radradra and Suliasi Vunivalu have declared their availability to again represent Fiji at the end of season Rugby League World Cup and wants former Parramatta team‑mate Jarryd Hayne to play as well with them.

After representing Fiji at the 2013 World Cup and in the 2014 Pacific Test, Radradra changed his Test allegiance last year to play for Australia on residency grounds and made his Kangaroos debut against New Zealand in the mid‑season Test.

However, under changes to the international eligibility rules players who qualify for more than one country can choose to play for one tier one nation – Australia, England or New Zealand – and one tier two nation.

Having decided to leave Parramatta at the end of the season to play rugby union in France, Radradra will not be considered by Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga but his availability would be a boost for Fiji.

Radradra who in Fiji with Vunivalu says they would love to represent Fiji at the World Cup if given the chance.

Fiji's first two World Cup games are in Townsville on October 28 against USA and November 5 against Wales before travelling to Canberra to face Italy on November 10.
