Inu latest withdrawal from Kiwis squad

4:15 pm on 10 October 2011

The Warriors centre Krisnan Inu has withdrawn from the Kiwis' touring squad for Sunday's one-off rugby league test against the Australia and the following 2011 Four Nations in England.

Inu was brought into the side on Friday as one of three replacements after Warriors Manu Vatuvei and Shaun Johnson plus Manly's Steve Matai were ruled out on medical grounds.

The Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney says Inu has withdrawn for personal reasons.

Teams are entitled to use 24 players at the Four Nations but Kearney says he won't be naming a replacement for Inu at this stage.
