Former NRL winger extends Catalans stay

Krisnan Inu

Impressing since his move to France, the good form has not gone unnoticed with former NRL utility back Krisnan Inu signing a new deal with the Catalan Dragons.

Since joining the Super League side, Inu has made an immediate impression and has been justifiably rewarded for his play.

A former Kiwi international, the 28-year old is thrilled to stay at the club and thankful for being given the initial opportunity.

“I would like to thank the club, in particular (chairman) Bernard Guasch, Laurent Frayssinous and the staff for having belief in me and my ability to contribute to the 2016 season,” said Inu.

“I’m happy to be a Dragon for another season and I hope to make it a big one for all the players, old and new, and especially for our great fans.”

Inu received praise yet mild criticism from coach Laurent Frayssinous who, on the whole, is pleased with how the utility back has settled in.

“I am delighted that Krisnan has chosen to stay with us next season,” said Frayssinous.

“He is a really talented player who can do what only a few players in Super League can do. He settled in really well here and showed some great qualities with us since his arrival, although he does have to improve his consistency.

“He will have a break during the off season for the first time in two years so it will allow him to recharge the batteries and work hard when the pre-season begins.”
