Outside Rugby League, Inu is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is a childhood friend of Jarryd Hayne and Israel Folau, all of whom grew up in Western Sydney, in the suburb of Minto.

He was also nominated for the Rookie of the Year at the 2008 Dally M awards but was beaten by Melbourne Storm player Israel Folau. It was announced in May 2010 that Inu signed with the Warriors in which he would stay for the two following years. He is known fondest for scoring the winning try against the West Tigers during the finals. During 2012, Inu would have an inconsistent run with the Warriors, resulting in a mid-season transfer to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs. He was named man-of-the-match in his first appearance. Despite Inu’s inconsistency as a player there is no doubting his natural talent. He has played in three of the last four Grand Finals, all with different clubs.

Manu Vatuvei may be known to todays Warriors and Kiwis fans as "the beast" but it is Kevin Iro that the name was first gifted to by rugby league fans. A gifted centre with the ability to either break tackles or off load the ball in traffic and standing at 6ft 3inch and almost 100kg it's easy to see why he was such a handfull for opposition players at any level. Kevin played for the Glen Innes Falcons and then moved to the Falcons feeder club Ellerslie Eagles as a young man before transferring to Mt Albert as a teenager. It was in 1987 that Kevin hit the big time playing for Mt Albert, Auckland and ultimately the New Zealand Kiwis. Kevin signed with giants of rugby league Wigan for the English winter of 1987. In 1988 Kevin won the Challenge cup with his Wigan club as well played in the world cup final at Eden Park in Auckland in front of 47,363. Iro again won the Challenge cup in 1989/90 and 1991 before moving to Manly in Australia with his Kiwis and Wigan mentor Graham Lowe. Kevin played for Manly for just two seasons with the high light being the semi finals of the 1991 seasons. In 1992 Kevin moved back to England this time with Leeds where he stayed for four seasons playing 115 games. Next club on Kevins radar was the Hunter Mariners in the Super league competition in Australia and in 1998 Kevin returned home to Auckland and joined the Warriors with his debut game coming against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in round 1 of the 1998 season. After just the one season for the Auckland club Kevin moved back to the ESL to finish his career with St Helens, playing two seasons for the Saints before retireing from the game. Kevin has since moved to the Cook Islands where he has continues to foster the game of rugby league there. He has coached the Cook Islands national side as well as playing three tests for the Cooks. As recently as 2009 Kevin made a brief return to the playing field with the Cook Islands rugby union 7's side at the Wellignton 7's. Kevins brother was also a test player and professional rugby league player and recently was the assistant coach at the Warriors, coaching the NRL side in 2 games after Bluey McClennon was sacked.
