Greg Inglis makes shock return to rugby league

Greg Inglis is to return to rugby league in his native Australia.

It’s not an NRL nor Super League comeback, but Inglis has signed with the Macksville Sea Eagles in the New South Wales state.

He retired from rugby league in 2019, though a short-team deal at the Warrington Wolves in Super League coaxed him to return.

However, the superstar centre played just three games before having his contract terminated.

Inglis also played 263 NRL games over stints with the Storm and Rabbitohs and played 32 games for Queensland, as well as 39 games for the Kangaroos.

Macksville announced the big signing via their social media on Wednesday.

“The Macksville Sea Eagles are proud to announce the Signing of Greg Inglis for the 2022 Group 2 rugby league Season,” the post read.

From 2011 to 2019 he played in the NRL for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, with whom he won a premiership in 2014.

“Last year Greg played for the Warrington Wolves in the UK for the past season sharing his experience and expertise with the Super League.

“Greg looks forward to seeing continuing rugby league career in his hometown of Macksville.

“He is proud to once again play for the club as his father did back when he was growing up in the Nambucca Valley. It means a lot to him and his family to be playing for Macksville once again.

“The club and all its members would like to welcome Greg home and we are all looking forward to the 2022 season.”
