Vodafone Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah today confirmed Krisnan Inu had been granted a release from his contract to join the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
“The Bulldogs have sought an immediate release due to an injury crisis among their wingers,” he said.
“While Krisnan still has the rest of this season and 2013 to run on his contract, we’ve agreed to let him go now.”
Inu said he was looking forward to his new challenge after signing with the Bulldogs until the end of the 2015 season.
“I appreciate what the Vodafone Warriors have done in letting me go now, giving me the chance to play NRL football,” he said.
“I want to thank everyone at the club for what they’ve done for me. I’ve enjoyed my time here.”
Scurrah said the Vodafone Warriors wouldn’t stand in Inu’s way.
“Kris has made a big contribution to the club on and off the field and leaves with our best wishes for the future,” he said.
Inu joined the Vodafone Warriors from Parramatta after the 2010 season. He played a total of 21 NRL games for the club in 2011-2012 scoring 12 tries. He has a career total of 99 NRL appearances.

That would be very disappointing, but I guess I can live with it. Inu would still be my first centre/wing picked, but I'm going to trust Bluey - I wanted him here, so I'll let him do what he wants.

Meh. With our new signing, I'm not fussed about this. It will free up a good amount of coin to upgrade Benry, Taylor, Hurrell and co too.

I can't see the Bulldogs paying full price for Inu, so if we have to cover some of his costs, why not at least keep him as injury cover.

I'll be honest, I don't konw enough about Nielsen to have an opinion either way about his signing, but I wonder what they intent is with our existing centres. Is Benry just viewed as a fill in until Nielsen arrives? Is Ropo not going to be re-signed? Is Hurrell perhaps not considered first grade material? Will Inu be the only release? Will Nielsen be a strong centre for the Warriors? We haven't really had an exceptional centre in a long time, and I wonder if it is an issue with the way the club uses its centre. Even Tate was not quite up to his usual standard when he was playing for us.

That's actually a very good point man. If we're paying anything substantial, we may as well keep him around.

In regards to Nielson, from what the Storm fans are saying, he's an average attack but a very good defender. Sounds exactly like what we need?

Well pretty much Fazz.

I had Nielsen in my NNRL team last yr (and as such - took extra notice when the Storm were playing). He's not brilliant in attack but he's solid. He does the fundamentals well, and he's very solid in D. That's exactly what we are after.

Anyway re Inu, I'm inclined to think he'll do exactly as LG says above. He'll go to the Dogs under Hasler and come back to bite us. I'm just not convinced we have enough depth to let him go.

The good thing about NNRL is it makes you an expert in certain extras' play.

But yeah, good vibes. He should be a good educator to our youngsters after coming through a quality system at Melbourne.

I reckon Inu sealed his own fate when he spurned the Kiwis last year. Bluey's passionate about the Kiwis so it wasn't a smart move if you were Inu and wanted to impress your new coach.

Neilson put 2 trys past Benry last week so you could consider it an upgrade. Knowing our luck, he'll pick up a season ending injury when he plays us in a few weeks time.

INU at the Bulldogs will work a treat. Morris and Inu at centres? Awesome and I guarantee Inu will bite us where it hurts and if its the GF 2013 then good job Warriors Management. Losing a talented player all because coaches, management dont like him. Bet you after that game vs tigers in last years final they were kissing his ass and praising his name to media and whoever else that gives a damn about what they say. Its a shame that they treated Inu like he slept with 1 of there wives. Inu & Morris Vs Henry & Ropati, who would you pick to win. Hands down who I thing

No surprises really - this has been rumoured for a while now. If Inu can get a gig at another club, and that club is willing to tolerate his BS, then best of luck to both of them. I was rapt when we signed Inu, but obviously his issues have held him back so there's no point keeping the guy around.
For the rest of this season though, it leaves us pretty dire in the outside back depth...

I think Inu was doomed before he got off the plane in auckland. Give respect to gain respect and I think Inu has been disrespected from the coaches and management for way to long and hes had enough. You give BS you get BS so good luck to him but HE WILL bite us for sure. Watch that for sure.....

So the Eels, Ivan Cleary and McClennan are all at fault... and Inu is the innocent party?
Inu is the common factor in all these occasions of mysterious non-selection. To me this suggests he's also the cause...

Yes the coaches are to blame. Put yourself in Inu's shoes, played in GF for Eels, played for Kiwis then goes to Warriors and plays for the Vulcans. He hasnt been given a chance. What happen last year when Inu replace Manu when Manu was injured? Come back to me when you find out Hitman82

Maybe Inu should be given the benefit of the doubt like Manu has for like 6 or 7 years. Manu makes mistakes every game and still hasnt been dropped to the Vulcans once. Why? To me sounds like favouratism. Maybe Inu needs to kiss the coaches ass more then
