Salford complete Inu signing

Salford have signed centre Krisnan Inu after he was released by Widnes.

The 32-year-old has been training with the Red Devils since his exit from the Vikings last month.

Inu was a victim of the Cheshire club’s financial collapse and had his contract terminated as they cut costs in a bid to survive.

A standout performer in the Vikings relegation campaign last year, he brings a wealth of experience to Salford having had seven successful seasons in the NRL with Parramatta Eels, New Zealand Warriors and Canterbury Bulldogs.

Before joining Widnes, Inu also played rugby union and had two season in the South of France playing for the Catalans Dragons.

Speaking on the signing, Salford head coach Ian Watson told the club’s official website: “Krisnan is a high-quality addition to our back-line who we spoke to in pre-season and are now really pleased to have brought to the Club.

“He has a proven record in both the NRL and Super League so when Krisnan became available it was important for us at the Club to sign him in order to lift the levels of competition and quality within our squad.

“We are hoping after a couple of setbacks we can get Krisnan back to his best and back to enjoying his Rugby League.”
