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.
But, following an injury-hit last few years, Inglis has a strong tie to the community after setting up the inaugural Goanna Academy in Macksville last year.
The academy helps people deal with mental health issues and he took it with him to the UK in his short stay at Warrington.
But, now Inglis has revealed just why he will be putting his boots back on.
“It means a lot to me, it means a lot to this community,” Inglis said at the time.
“I grew up in this community, I grew up in this town. It means a lot to me coming back here and giving back to the community.”
