Greg Inglis’ future in the NRL remains up in the air after the NRL blocked his proposed move to the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Saturday.
The NRL advised the Rabbitohs that it must include the full value of a number of third party agreements relating to the Queensland Origin star’s $400,000 a year deal.
Inglis, who reneged on a deal to sign with the Brisbane Broncos when third party deals failed to materialise, will now continue to in rugby league limbo as he is without a club for 2011.
In a statement released on Saturday, the NRL explained that the rules are in place to “ensure that any third party agreement is not in truth a vehicle to remunerate the player for playing rugby league at his club”.
South Sydney admitted they were “disappointed” and disagree with the decision, and will assess the situation this week with NRL salary cap auditor Ian Schubert.
