Krisnan Inu fined four weeks wages and suspended following social media comments

Salford have announced that Krisnan Uni has been fined four weeks salary and will be suspended from play for two months commencing from the original suspension day for comments made on social media.

The Red Devils star shown public support to Jarryd Hayne after he was jailed for sexual assault earlier in May, and the club immediately launched an internal investigation.

Separately, the RFL found Inu to be guilty of misconduct in respect of the following rules:

RFL Social Media Policy

Operational Rules C2:6 (failure to adhere to policy)

C2:11 (Unacceptable Language)

D1:1(b) (Conduct prejudicial to the interests of the game)

In view of the club’s decision, no additional sanction will be imposed by the RFL. However, the RFL reserves the right to impose further and more severe sanctions in the event of repeated, similar offences. Inu has the right to appeal against the RFL’s decision.

Inu said: “I deeply apologise for the comments made in my social media postings on May 6.

“By the inappropriate use of language, my remarks were open to misinterpretation and have caused offence and disrepute to my club Salford Red Devils and the RFL. Along with the club, I will not condone any violence against another person and truly believe that any such victim should receive appropriate support.”
