Parramatta chief executive Bernie Gurr insists Semi Radradra is in the NRL to stay, describing Toulon as no more than a back-up plan should he be kicked out of rugby league. T.J. McDonald Jersey .But Gurr admits its not ideal the star winger will face court over domestic violence charges less than three weeks before the 2017 season begins.Radradra returned to team training on the NSW central coast on Wednesday, hours after surrendering his passport in a Sydney court and amid drama and confusion about his future.The 24-year-old arrived back in Australia from Fiji on Tuesday night with his NRL fate on shaky ground and a Toulon contract on the table.Gurr staunchly refuted the French rugby powerhouses announcement on Monday they had secured Radradras signature for the 2017-18 Top 14 season, adamant the Eels intended to hold onto their prized winger at least until his contract expired at the end of 2017.He said Radradras manager George Christodoulou had definitively denied the deal was done, or even verbally committed to, despite Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellals insistence to the contrary.His manager has been honest with us and we have no reason to question what hes told us, said Gurr, who said the Eels were in preliminary negotiations about securing Radradras signature long term, pending a verdict on his charges.My understanding is that Semis preference is to stay in the NRL.Gurr did concede a Toulon deal could be plan B if Radradra was convicted of three charges of domestic violence brought by his former partner Perina Ting and banished from the NRL by the games integrity unit.Radradra, who denies the allegations, failed to appear on Monday in Parramatta Local Court, angering the magistrate sufficiently to threaten him with an arrest warrant.When he finally fronted on Wednesday morning, his lawyer convinced the magistrate his clients father had been sick enough to warrant an unscheduled trip home to Fiji, which was taken with Parramattas blessing.While the arrest warrant was revoked, Radradra was forced to hand over his passport, meaning he would be unable to leave Australia before his hearing on February 13.That would rule him out of Februarys Auckland Nines, in which he played a key role in the Eels 2016 title that was later stripped due to salary-cap breaches.Gurr admitted the timing of Radradras hearing, set down just before the new NRL season, was inconvenient.Ideally, the thing would have been wrapped up on Monday, Gurr said.Now that its been put back to February, were just going to deal with that - you deal with the cards youre played - we cant control anything else.Its not ideal, but I dont think its going to disrupt the teams preparation.Were merely going through this in steps.Step one was to get in consultation with his manager, to get Semi back in the country and then to fulfil his obligation to turn up in court today.Thats been done - the result is satisfactory at this stage ... now they can have plenty of time to prepare for the legal case in February. Nat Moore Jersey . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said.

He could send out Rhett Almond to attempt a game-winning kick despite the sophomore missing a field and an extra point earlier in the game or turn to freshman Jake Oldroyd.Sitake went with the freshman, with an assist to special teams coach Ed Lamb, and it worked out perfectly for the Cougars.Oldroyd kicked a 33-yard field goal with 4 seconds left and Jamaal Williams ran for 162 yards, helping BYU rally to beat Arizona 18-16 on Saturday night.After the field goal and PAT we had earlier; I wouldnt say it was a good time to do it, but I felt comfortable with Jake being in that position, Sitake said.BYU sputtered at times, but pulled out a victory to start a brutal opening stretch of the season.Williams looked like he never left after sitting out last season due to personal reasons, carrying 29 times to spark BYUs offense.Taysom Hill was sharp after missing most of last season with a foot injury, hitting 21 of 29 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown.It still was tight.Arizonas Nick Wilson scored on a 49-yard run with 1:26 left and the Wildcats failed on the 2-point conversion, giving the Cougars a final chance at University of Phoenix Stadium.BYU started its final drive on its own 31 and quickly moved down the field to set up Oldroyds kick. The freshman split the uprights, raised his arms and ran toward BYUs sideline after hitting a winning kick in his first career game .We were calm the whole time, Hill said of the final drive. We knew we had a great opportunity.Arizona went through a difficult fall camp, trying to focus on football after offensive lineman Zach Hemmila was found dead in his apartment on Aug. 8. Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez joined Hemmilas family with athletic director Greg Byrne and offensive line coach Jim Michalczik for a pre-game ceremony that include a highlight video.The Wildcats had plenty of questions heading into the season, the big one being who will start at quarterback.Anu Solomon got the start after a tight battle with sophomore Brandon Dawkins that started in spring, but struggled against BYUs defensive pressure up fronnt for most of the game. Kenyan Drake Jersey. This one is on me, said Solomon, who threw for 213 yards on 20-of-30 passing. I have to play better.He wasnt alone.Wilson also scored on a 15-yard run in the fourth quarter and finished with 138 yards rushing, one of the few bright spots on Arizonas offense. The Wildcats finished with 328 total yards, 190 of that coming in the fourth quarter.You ask the same question four or five times, it eventually becomes like a lawyer, Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said. Ask the same question four times, youre going to get the same I answer, I think. Maybe not.THE TAKEAWAYBYU: Williams was explosive at times and Hill was efficient in his return, coming through when the Cougars needed him to. Despite some breakdowns in the fourth quarter, BYUs defense was solid, holding Arizonas quick-hitting offense in check most of the night.Arizona: The offensive line, one of the teams most experienced groups, could not solve BYUs pressure until late. The defense, solid for most of the night, allowed the Cougars to quick-hit their way down the field to set up the winning kick. Arizona entered the season with plenty of questions and didnt get many answers.JONES INJUREDArizona suffered a big blow in the second quarter when spur linebacker Tellas Jones went down with an injury and did not return.The sophomore was one of the few known entities on Arizonas defense and was arguably its best player in the first half, ranging all over the field.We still had 11 guys out there, Rodriguez said. Tellas is a good player, but we still had 11 guys out there.QUOTABLEI was joking around afterward (Oldroyds kick) that there was so much conversation about my age and Im 26, I told the team Im too old for this, Im stressed, said Hill, who was granted a fifth year of eligibility after his injury last season.UP NEXTBYU: The Cougars continue a brutal start to the season at Utah next Saturday, followed by games against UCLA and West Virginia.Arizona: The Wildcats play their home opener against Grambling State next Saturday.
