Ex-Warrington Wolves man Greg Inglis to return to former club

Greg Inglis is a household name in rugby league.

After carving out a huge reputation for himself as one of the greatest to ever play the game, Inglis is set to return to one of his former sides ahead of the Indigenous Round in the NRL.

Melbourne Storm have revealed that Inglis will be welcomed back to the club ahead of what is being described as ‘an enormous pre-game show’ ahead of the club’s fixture against Manly Sea Eagles tomorrow night.

And, Storm CEO Justin Rodski told club media that he wants to make Indigenous Round a real event.

“We hope to launch Indigenous Round each year. We will be requesting this fixture with the NRL, and believe we can play an important role in celebrating indigenous round as a club,” Rodski said.

“Storm has a proud history of Indigenous players who have provided many highlights over the years and represented their people and culture with great pride,” Rodski said.

“We have a national platform to recognise and celebrate our indigenous players but more importantly we want to highlight our First Nations peoples and the club’s commitment to reconciliation and education.

“The pre-match ceremony, Welcome to Country and cultural performances will be a powerful and moving experience to be a part of, and similar to our ANZAC Day blockbuster, we strongly encourage our members and fans to be in your seat early.”

“The return of GI will be very emotional given the place he holds with our club and the role he has played in the NRL and the community more broadly.”

Inglis scored 78 tries in 118 appearances, firmly etching his name into Melbourne folklore.
