Krisnan Nevada Inu (born 17 March 1987) is a New Zealand professional rugby league player for the Catalans Dragons in Super League. He has previously played for Stade Français of the Top 14 in rugby union and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, Parramatta Eels and New Zealand Warriors in the National Rugby League. Inu was a member of the 2008 World Cup-winning New Zealand team.
A Parramatta Eels junior, Inu made his first grade debut in the 2007 NRL season against the Canberra Raiders. After just one first grade match he was named to play for New Zealand in the ANZAC Day Test against Australia at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. The Kangaroos ran out easy 30-6 winners over the Kiwis. After the test, Inu was dropped back to Premier League but returned to first grade through a series of injuries to regular players. Inu took on the kicking duties as Parramatta's primary kicker and full-back, Luke Burt, was injured mid-season. In Round 25 Inu scored three tries and kicked seven goals in Parramatta's 46-point win over Brisbane.
After a 2-4 start to the 2009 season, the Eels decided to re-tool their line-up, dropping Inu to the New South Wales Cup, with Taulima Tautai replacing him for the Round 7 match against the Brisbane Broncos.
