Correct name Krisnan, not Krishnan, but a good player, good goalkicker, but a little inconsistent over his career. Plays a bit off-the-cuff at times, which may not suit his new career, though.

Yeah, nice to see a fringe player get a chance for a game-time at a lower level...

Hopefully, he will be ready to play in major rugby matches in the future.

Very inconsistent of late and hasn't made many first grade appearances this season.

Known for his "fangs" mouth guard.

A rocks and diamonds sort of player who had struggled to get some game for the Bulldogs this year. Can be brilliant at times then 2 minutes later come up with schoolboy clangers.

Every club he's been at seem to have questioned his attitude and application even though his talent is not in doubt.

I assume he will not be turning out for Samoa in the 4 Nations then?

Agree he will get a run out with the lower sides at the club but possibly he may eventually make the 1st team at Stade. Hopefully coming from a top NRL club he has a few basic skills to build on.

A very lazy player who is good when he wants to be which is not that often. Should go OK in Union where you dont run and do that much work especially in the backs. Very much a fringe player the past few seasons.

It's always good to see a player from the top RL competition want to test himself at RU to see if he is good enough.

he has been playing a lot of new south wales cup games. That's the 3rd best competition in Australia.

Presumably he played rugby as a schoolboy and this is a great oppotunity to fulfill his boyhood ambition to play top level rugby.  It is rather heart warming.

He was considered to be lazy while at the NZ Warriors a few years ago.......that takes some doing.......

 

When "on" he was amazing.  

 

When he couldn't be arsed he was more than a liability - he'd destroy the entire team's effort.

 

I wasn't sad to see him go from The warriors and I suspect Dogs fans can't be that concerned either.  A great talent - but attached to an individual with a work ethic that can't take advantage of it.

No big loss IMO, he was no where near NZ test selection and I believe he was in and out of the bulldogs first team. That said when he first burst onto the scene a few years back I thought he was the going to be one of the NRL's next "sensation" having made his test debut for NZ against Australia before his eels debut.

He would not be the first player to correct his lifestyle and attitude once in the environs of rugby union.  Jason Robinson springs to mind.

Jason Robinson was a world class, top level RL player, not a fringe player. He would not have been in that particular Wigan team if he were not.

Sheffield Eagles ahd exposed his all too apparent weaknesses in teh Challenge Cup final.  It took rugby union to make him a great player.

I will respectfully disagree.

 

It took 90% poorer defences to make him look even greater.

This trolling is quite fun, even if I am not very successful!
