Greg Inglis reflects on hardships whilst at Warrington

Greg Inglis has taken to social media to outline his determination to keep helping young people with his workshops.

The former Warrington centre brought his Goanna Academy to the UK along with him when he came out of retirement for the Wolves ahead of the 2021 Super League season in a bid to educate and pass on his knowledge to juniors and trainers following the COVID-19 lockdown.

Those youngsters – and Inglis – attempted to get back to normal following yet another pandemic outbreak, with daily life completely different.

Unfortunately for Inglis and the Wire, the Aussie made just three appearances, scoring two tries in the process, before succumbing to injury.

That injury left Inglis fighting for his rugby league career once more – something which, this time, could not be overcome.

Instead, the 34-year-old hung up his boots for good towards the back end of the 2021 season, taking up a voluntary role at the Halliwell Jones, before announcing he would be leaving for Down Under.

But, Inglis’ time in the UK wasn’t without educating the next generation and helping a small section of society through the hardships of lockdown.

Inglis said: “Throwback to the @goannaacademy x @athlete1st clinic where I was privileged to bring the Goanna Academy to the UK and work alongside a great mate of mine, and share my knowledge with juniors and likeminded trainers who recently got out of a tough COVID-19 lockdown.

“Looking forward to doing more of these in 2022 and helping out our youth. 🤟🏽🤟🏽”
