Greg Inglis fronted the rugby league media yesterday (Tuesday) in the green and gold of Australia ahead of this Frida night’s Test against New Zealand.
Following a team visit to Westmead Children’s Hospital, Inglis played down his much talked about try from last Friday night against the Broncos, citing that while he is pleased with his form so far this season, small lapses in the Rabbitohs game still need to be addressed.
“Yeah I’ve definitely been happy with it,” said Inglis of his form.
“It’s just little lapses with our game at Souths. At the end of the day, we just have to get those lapses out of our game and put a really good performance in.”
On the international front though, speculation has again surfaced as to who will don the number one Kangaroos jersey, with Melbourne’s Billy Slater and Inglis trading opportunities at the 2013 World Cup. Inglis dismissed the speculation, confirming that while Slater is fit, he will always be Australia’s number one.
“It’s always immediately speculated – who should be where,” said Inglis.
“But we know our job since we get the call, we know where we sit and there’s no hesitation or confusion around that. When we get into camp we know who’s playing where and what’s going on.
“Playing alongside Billy and playing with him at Melbourne, I know the kind of character he is and the kind of professional he is.
“He’s a game-changer and he’s one of those players you need in the side – as long as he’s fit, he’s always going to be our number one.”
