Greg Inglis’ NRL career hangs in the balance, with the South Sydney superstar set to make a call on his playing future early next week.
Inglis is currently on leave from the Rabbitohs as he battles a shoulder injury as well as fitness problems, with coach Wayne Bennett to meet up with him next week to see if he’s still keen to play on.
The Maroons and Kangaroos star has already confirmed he will retire at the end of the 2020 season, but there’s a possibility that could be brought forward.
If it does, the Bunnies will need to be prepared to replace Inglis, and according to the Courier Mail, Brisbane centre James Roberts could be one of their main targets.
Roberts played for the Bunnies in 2011, in his first season in the NRL.
He’s gone on to play 76 games for the Broncos, with all but three of those being played under Bennett.
Roberts has struggled with form and injury so far this season, and the Bunnies could come calling in the near future if Inglis calls time early.
