Salford Red Devils are delighted to welcome former winger, Krisnan Inu back to the Club in his first off-the-field role as Assistant Coach.
The 35-year-old will work closely with Paul Rowley and Kurt Haggerty to manage and develop a playing squad already packed with talent. Inu brings years of playing experience from both sides of the world and will no doubt be hugely beneficial to our mixture of established names and young talent.
During his three-year stay at the AJ Bell Stadium, Inu made 53 appearances for the Club, scoring 24 tries and converting 195 goals. His trusty right boot was involved in so many memorable moments – including the 2019 Betfred Super League Grand Final and 2020 Challenge Cup final.
Speaking after returning to the Club, Inu said: “I’m excited to be coming home and joining the staff in a role I wasn’t expecting to come into.
“I’m grateful and proud to be helping the team reach their goals and get them to where they deserve to be – and that’s in the top six. I can’t wait for the challenges ahead and I’m looking forward to what the next few seasons bring.”
“Kris has had a fantastic playing career and made a positive impact at each club he’s represented – one of those, of course, being Salford.
“With that in mind, I not only welcome an intelligent and experienced rugby guy, but more importantly a trusted friend who I am looking forward to helping him on the next phase of his rugby journey.”
Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease also said: “We’re delighted to welcome Krisnan back to the Club in his first off-the-field venture as Assistant Coach. He has a big personality, is a positive human and will be a strong influence around the group and club.
“He was a superb player for us and the fact he represented Salford in the 2019 Super League Grand Final and 2020 Challenge Cup final means he has copious amounts of valuable experience he can bring to the squad – including five years in the NRL.”
“I’m look forward to seeing how he can develop and add the already blossoming dynamic Paul Rowley’s team have created behind the scenes. “
