Inu praises Widnes youngsters

Widnes Vikings’ new recruit Krisnan Inu says the younger players at the club are a sign of good things to come.

A very young Widnes team edged past local rivals Warrington Wolves 26-22 last Friday, with the likes of Olly Ashall, Keanan Brand, Jay Chapelhow, Ted Chapelhow, Brad Walker and Danny Walker all featuring.

And Inu, a New Zealand and Samoa international, believes there are plenty of good things to come at Widnes.

He told “The young boys had the opportunity to show what they can bring to the game and what we’ll need throughout the season.

“They all put their hand up and played well. None of them looked out of place (in the first team). Everyone was fighting fit, and looked fast and ready to go. There were signs of good things to come.”

The 30-year-old added that he is looking forward to playing in front of the Vikings supporters.

He said: “It was always tough to play against Widnes.

“Playing them at Catalans was weird – the crowd was loud, vocal and you could feel their support in the crowd – that was just at Catalans.

“Playing them here (Select Security Stadium) was another level, it was pretty much one of those games you’d dread! You knew what the crowd would bring, let alone what they had on the field, so I’m glad to be on the right side this time around!”
