Greg Inglis fuels fire of sensational coaching role

Greg Inglis could be set for a sensational coaching role with Billy Slater’s Queensland.

Inglis, who will now play for the Macksville Sea Eagles back in Australia after a year in Super League, said he is more than open to joining his friend at the helm of the State of Origin Maroons.

The Australian’s Brent Read revealed on Triple M that Inglis will be in Australia in time for next year’s series and is keen to get involved if Slater needs him.

“I asked Greg Inglis about Billy Slater and the Maroons and he has kept an eye on things from afar,” Read said on Triple M.

“I asked him if he would be willing to come back and offer a hand to Billy if he reached out.

“He said no doubt he would love to help Billy. He endorsed his appointment as Origin coach. He obviously knows him well from Melbourne and Queensland.

“He said people don’t understand the work ethic and the things Billy does behind the scenes. He said he will be an outstanding success as Origin coach.

“He said if Billy needs me and reaches out to me I’m here for him. It doesn’t matter if he wants me for one day or seven days I will be there for Billy.

“It raised the spectre of getting the gang back together.

“Cam Smith is not officially on board, but there has obviously been contact there and Johnathan Thurston was part of the coaching team last year.”
