As revealed exclusively to Viking Stronghold Members this morning, Widnes Vikings have today announced the signing of Krisnan Inu on a two year deal. 

Inu joins the Vikings from Catalans Dragons. The outside back, who specialised at centre for Catalans, has also represented NRL sides Parramatta Eels, New Zealand Warriors and Canterbury Bulldogs during his illustrious top-flight career. In 2014, he switched codes, representing Stade Français in their Top 14 winning season. 

With almost 200 career appearances at the highest levels of the game, Inu brings proven quality and experience to the Vikings team. He was a member of New Zealand’s 2008 World Cup winning squad and represented the Kiwis in the 2013 tournament. Krisnan has also earned international honours for Samoa.

Denis Betts, Head Coach Of Widnes Vikings, says: “We are delighted to secure the services of Krisnan Inu. Krisnan has exceptional playing abilities and understands the English game well. He will bring real quality to our edges and I am excited about the impact that he can make on the field. Importantly, Krisnan offers real experience too, as someone who has consistently proved himself in the NRL, Super League and internationally. I am looking forward to seeing him in action in 2018.”

Krisnan Inu says: “I’m very excited to be playing for Widnes Vikings in the Super League next season. I know from experience that Widnes Vikings are a tough team to play against and have great supporters, so I am pleased to be joining the team.
