It’s official – former NRL star Greg Inglis is coming out of retirement to join the Super League.

The former Storm and Rabbitohs player has signed a one-year deal with the Warrington Wolves for the 2021 season.

Inglis was thrilled to begin the next chapter of his career.

“I can’t wait to get over there and play for a club that has so much rich heritage,” he told warringtonwolves.com.

“I’ve seen the success the team have had in the Challenge Cup and I want to help the team to deliver more glory.

“I’ve played over in England many times in representative footy and love how passionate and vocal the supporters are.

“To get the opportunity to live in the UK, to play for such a powerhouse club that I believe is on the rise is something I’m looking forward to and hopefully I can add value to the team.”

Warrington Wolves CEO Karl Fitzpatrick said Inglis’ signing was monumental.

“This signing is a gift to every one of our fantastic members and partners who are currently experiencing difficult times.

“We wanted to give everyone something to look forward to and to say thank you for their extraordinary loyalty. With this in mind we were extra motivated to get this deal completed.

“Greg is considered to be one of the greatest Rugby League players of the modern era. To see him pull on the primrose and blue will be a historical moment in Warrington Wolves and Super League’s timeline.”

Wire’s Head Coach Steve Price added: “Greg is a world class athlete and has received the highest honours within our game.

“Having had 12 months out of the sport he has had time to refresh both mentally and physically, and he is focussed on having a positive influence on Warrington Wolves.

“I’m looking forward to working with him on a professional and personal level, and I’m excited to welcome him into our group.”

  1. Why not just come back to Souths, we could surely use him , always thought all he needed was a time out from the game, but at 1.2mil i guess you can’t have talent like that sitting out and chewing the salary cap
