South Sydney skipper Greg Inglis will miss a chunk of the pre-season after a flare up of a lingering knee injury, as confirmed by coach Wayne Bennett to The Daily Telegraph.
The 32-year old is unlikely to play in any of the Rabbitohs’ trial matches, beginning with the Bunnies clash with the Panthers at Redfern Oval on February 23.
Additionally, Inglis is not expected to line up for the Indigenous All Stars in their clash against the Maori team on February 15.
The star fullback missed most of the 2017 season after undergoing a construction of the same knee that is troubling him now.
Alex Johnston and Corey Allan shape as potentially opens to replace Inglis in the No. 1 jersey.
