Krisnan Inu has posted an emotional farewell message to Leigh after playing a starring role in helping the Centurions clinch promotion to Super League.

The 35-year-old joined Leigh earlier this year from French Elite 1 Championship side Lezignan.

Inu quickly became a fan favourite on the terraces at the Leigh Sports Village. He scored 25 tries and kicked 159 goals in 23 appearances, racking up a total of 418 points, averaging more than 18 points per game.

But Inu’s time at Leigh seems to be over, with the former New Zealand and Samoa international saying on his Instagram that his future is unknown, but the fire still burns to play on.

Posting on his Instagram, Inu wrote: “2022 brought more than expected, but hard work, friendship and a great family made the journey and results speak for itself.

“My VP @iamcamilledlc_ (Camille Inu) thank you. Thank you for letting me continue to live my dream and push my body to be strong for yet another season. Thank you for the sacrifices and holding it down for our family when I’m not around. Love you to the moon and back 1000000x over.

“Season 16, done and dusted. Future unknown. But the fire still burns. To be continued…”
