Krisnan Inu
Looking for new club

RUMOUR: Krisnan Inu released by Warriors

The latest rumour doing the rounds is that Krisnan Inu and the New Zealand Warriors have mutually agreed to part ways, to be made official once the Four Nations tournament is over.

It was reported a few weeks back that the Warriors had been shopping Inu around and it now seems one of these clubs has agreed to take on the Kiwi international.

Releasing Inu will free up a fair amount of cash under the salary cap for the Warriors, as he’s reported to be on around $250,000 per season.

The Cronulla Sharks and the St George Illawarra Dragons are the hot favourites to snare the signature of the enigmatic centre, while the English Super League also remains an option.

Meanwhile, the Warriors look set to lose veteran utility Shaun Berrigan, with the Canberra Raiders targeting his versatility. There have also been rumours that winger Bill Tupou could be lost to a rival club as well.

It’s not clear yet if the club will look to sign new outside backs to replace the losses or promote from their junior ranks.

UPDATE: Not long after this article was published, Inu tweeted to his followers that he wouldn’t be leaving the Warriors. Perhaps there is no truth to this rumour.
