Wests Tigers junior Masei Tavui has been charged with the murder of Dejan “Danny the Serb” Radulovic in Sydney’s inner west.

Radulovic was allegedly stabbed and shot on Donnelly St in Balmain following an altercation with two men.

NSW Police raided a home in Austral on Tuesday morning, seizing “clothing relevant to their investigation”, before Tavui was led away in handcuffs.

Tavui was denied bail and when he appeared at Liverpool Local Court, while another man has been charged as an accessory to the murder and remains before the court.

Tavui has been a member of the Wests Tigers junior ranks for the past four years, rising through their Harold Matthews and SG Ball ranks and playing as a back-rower in the under-19s competition last year.

Radulovic was released from prison earlier this year after serving nine months behind bars for drug supply. Police established Strike Force Dears following Radulovic’s death, and continue to investigate the incident.
