South Sydney coach Wayne Bennett has admitted he’s unsure what decision Greg Inglis will make when he returns to Rabbitohs headquarters on Monday.

Inglis has been struggling with a shoulder injury and is currently on leave from the club, as he weighs up whether or not to return to playing, or call time on his career.

Bennett understands the “signs aren’t good” when it comes to Inglis’ shoulder problems, although he does hope he’s able to return and contribute for the Bunnies in the near future.

“I don’t know that, there’s no reason why he should or shouldn’t [continue playing rugby league], that’s up to him to decide, that’s what he’s away for now, just to get himself out of the bubble that we all live in,” Bennett told reporters on Friday.

“I’m not worried about him at all, because he’s in good care with good people around him.

“Our club’s very supportive of him, so I’d be a lot more worried if we weren’t doing what we’re doing.”

Inglis played in the Bunnies’ first two matches of the season, before missing their past two.


  1. Thank you kind sir for the memories, this once invincible indomitable individual has played his last game. My beloved South Sydney is in total turmoil. Bennett should be next.

    • Hey walker, don’t you read the press, there is no way Souths will get a medical clearance for Inglis, they will wear his salary for the next two years, so before mouthing off , how’s about you get your facts right.

      • But, why is it that GI is not eligible for a medical retirement? I was under the assumption it was an injury incurred after signing his last contract -2016. Wouldn’t his knee reco 2017, vertebrae operation 2018 and mental health issues 2017-19 count towards medical retirement?

      • Also, I wouldn’t believe anything that Christian Nicolussi says writing for Fairfax.

        I’ve already called him out on Twitter around his comments that Souths will be unable to use the medical retirement clause for GI.

  2. Yes souths have won the most premiersbips and yes our coach is the best coach in rugby league glory glory to both…winners are grinners and the rorters are 7 premierships behind souths lol@rorters…foreverinourshadow…

  3. GI is just a shadow of himself
    Skeletor is in the shadow of his mistress.
    Souffs full of shadow deals.

  4. No need to answer because your clubs are an embaressment with a minimal premiership tally…”foreverinourshadow”

    • Shadow I hope you enjoy the shadow of our Home Crowd averages. Sydney Roosters 17k souffffs 11 k. What has happened to those fabricated 28k members that souffffths boast about. What has happened to when soufffffths play good that rugby league fans are numerous😂😁😆🤣😆😁😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Shadow@soufffsinROOSTERSHADOW
