Greg Inglis is one of the greatest players of his generation, with over 250 first grade games under his belt, five Grand Final appearances and a premiership in 2014 with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The Kempsey native would originally retire in 2019 and go on to deal with personal issues, before making his return earlier this year in Super League with the Warrington Wolves, but after tearing his hamstring during the season he would terminate his playing contract with the Wolves, once again retiring from professional Rugby League.

However, it was confirmed earlier today that Inglis would be making his Rugby League return in 2022 with group two side the Macksville Sea Eagles, who put out a statement via their social media pages.

“The Macksville Sea Eagles are proud to announce the signing of Greg Inglis for the 2022 Group 2 Rugby League Season,” read the statement.

“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 Superleague.

“Greg looks forward to continuing his 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.

“Along with this announcement, Matt Hyland has also taken on the Captain Coach position for the 2022 season.

“Matt is excited about the season to come and get to play side by side with Greg once again.

“The Club and all its members would like to Welcome Greg home and we are all looking forward to the 2022 Season.”

Inglis signing with the Sea Eagles is a great get for regional Rugby League, as the 34-year-old is yet another former NRL player to end up playing Country Rugby League, and help to grow and keep the game strong in these areas that have developed many a great player for Rugby League.
