Inu Excited For Potential Return

Inu Excited For Potential Return

19th June 2018

Widnes Vikings centre Krisnan Inu has expressed his excitement at potentially making his return from injury against Wakefield Trinity this weekend.

The centre, who made a blistering start to his Vikings career with six tries in seven appearances, has been out of action for the Vikings since breaking his leg in the Good Friday clash against Warrington Wolves. 

Inu is back in full training with Francis Cummins' squad now, and says it is a good feeling to be in amongst the lads ahead of the Trinity fixture.

"It feels awesome, and it's a great to get a bit of contact in me," he said.

"I've been running with Gil (Dudson) for just over a week now, so it's good to be back. Like any teammate who is on the sidelines, you always want to help the team out.

"As a member of the squad, you want to do your part. You feel helpless at times and it's a pretty bad feeling being out injured, so I can't wait to be back on the field."

The centre, who topped the Super League try-scoring charts before his injury, believes the Vikings need to focus on themselves in order to correct the errors of previous weeks.

"Every game is important for us," he said.

"I think we need to focus on ourselves before we take a look at Wakefield and what they can do. We will do our video and listen to the game plan that the coaches give us, but in the end it comes down to us and how we respond to what we've been given."

The first team squad are working hard in training ahead of the fixture on Sunday afternoon, and the ex-Kiwi international says that training has been positive.

"The sessions are pretty vocal, and it's good for me to be back out there," he said.

"I tried to do my part by opening my big mouth and lift the boys' spirit. Everyone has had Gilly (Tom Gilmore) shouting too, who is probably the loudest in the team, so there is no shortage of voice in this team."

The Vikings play their third consecutive game on the road following trips to face Catalans Dragons and Salford Red Devils, and Inu says the support from the Vikings faithful will be just as important and vital this weekend. 

"They (the fans) are a massive help," he said.

"I was able to sit in the middle of them all for the away game against Catalans Dragons and I know how passionate every one of them is. It’s going to be a big help to see them on the sidelines getting behind us, and as a player you thrive off that support."
