Parramatta have resisted calls to drop Semi Radradra, in the wake of domestic violence allegations, with the Australian Test winger to take on Cronulla on Saturday night at Shark Park.

The NRL had asked for the 24-year-old to be stood down after Radradra was charged with three counts of domestic violence.

He returned from a 12-day hiatus in Fiji on Thursday night during which he considered a code switch to French rugby union.

Eels coach Brad Arthur had given Radradra the option to stand down but, after he expressed his intention to plead not guilty, the club decided to stick by the prolific try scorer.

In a big blow for the Sharks, star winger Valentine Holmes is a late withdrawal because of a hamstring injury with Gerard Beale to play on the right wing and mark Radradra.
