Inu comes into Warriors starting lineup

6:40 pm on 6 March 2012

Krisnan Inu has been included in the Warrior starting lineup to play the Parramatta in next Monday's National Rugby League match in Sydney.

Inu has been called in to replace the injured Jerome Ropati and will partner Konrad Hurrell in the centres.

While the ankle injury Ropati suffered in the weekend's season opening loss to Manly isn't as bad as first thought, team doctor John Mayhew says Ropati will still be out for three to four weeks.

The match will be the first time Inu has played against his former club having missed the two side's only encounter last season.

There's one other change to the starting lineup which played Manly with Sione Lousi starting at prop and Russell Packer dropping to the interchange bench.
