GI: I’ll Play Anywhere in the Green & Gold
Rabbitohs skipper, Greg Inglis, isn’t concerned about what position he plays in for Australia, as long he’s wearing green and gold.
Regular Test fullback Billy Slater ruled himself out of this Friday night’s ANZAC Test against New Zealand in Brisbane through injury, opening the door for Inglis to move from the centres to his all-too familiar Rabbitohs position.
But the number one jersey for GI is anything but certain, with Kangaroos Coach, Tim Sheens, yet to make a decision on the final make-up of his side.
For his part, Inglis is far from concerned about where he will eventually line-up.
“We’ve got a number of number ones in this side,” said Inglis.
“We’ll just wait and see on that decision when the coaches get together – it is bad news that Bill’s out, but he’s probably looking out for himself and what’s right for the team.
“I’ll be comfortable putting the number one on – I did play there in Four Nations last year, so I did get the feeling (for) playing fullback at the highest level.”
The match will be Inglis’ 34th Test for Australia since first pulling on the green and gold in 2006. He will play alongside fellow Rabbitoh Alex Johnston, who will play on the wing.
