Salford “doing their best” to keep top try scorer Ken Sio


Salford are doing their best to keep hold of Super League’s top try scorer Ken Sio, according to coach Richard Marshall.

The 30-year-old Australian, who currently sits top of Super League’s try scoring charts with 19, is out of contract at the end of the season.

Sio added to his tally with two more tries in Friday night’s 26-14 win over St Helens in the Red Devils’ final game of the season.

Marshall said: “We will be doing our best to keep hold of Ken.

“It was great team spirit that everyone wanted to get him to that milestone. For a team that finished near the bottom of the table and have the top try scorer is a nice accolade.”

Meanwhile, it seems Krisnan Inu’s time at Salford has come to an end.

The 34-year-old, who can play centre or wing, has become a fan favourite at the AJ Bell Stadium since joining the Red Devils in 2019.

Inu helped Salford reach the Super League Grand Final in 2019 and the Challenge Cup final the following season.

The former New Zealand and Samoa international, who was named in the Super League Dream in 2020, has played 12 games for Salford this season.

Inu has taken to social media to thank the Salford faithful for their support during his time at the club.

He posted: “I wish to thank the club and fans for the last three years, but it looks like my journey as a Red Devil has come to an end.

“Where to from now? I don’t know but the fans have made my stay at the club a pleasure and I will be forever grateful for that.

“Good luck and peace out for now.”

Inu has made more than 250 career appearances for Parramatta Eels, New Zealand Warriors, Canterbury Bulldogs, Catalans, Widnes and Salford.
