Inglis closes door on NRL and Origin return

Warrington Wolves centre Greg Inglis has said there is no chance of him returning to play in the NRL or in State of Origin.

Inglis returns to the game after two years out of the game. He retired whilst playing for South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2019.

In a similar story, Allan Langer came out of retirement to sign for Warrington in 2000, and ended up playing in Origin again and went back to Brisbane ahead of the 2002 season.

Inglis had a decorated career in the NRL, playing over 250 appearances for Melbourne Storm and the Rabbitohs, winning three NRL titles.

When asked of he could go back, he said: “The NRL door is completely closed. If I did go back to the NRL, it would be in a coaching capacity.

“I had been going into businesses and talking about mental health and my experiences. I would maybe go and do something like that if the opportunity came up.”

Meanwhile, in the representative arena, he played 32 times for Queensland, scoring 18 tries. He has also represnted Australia, Indigenous All Stars and the Prime Minister’s 13.

Inglis also closed the door on a return to there as well.

He added: “I left the representative arena on good terms, and I do not want to go back and ruin that.

“I already had a call last year to go back and play, and I said no.”
