Rabbitohs halfback, Adam Reynolds, says that returning skipper Greg Inglis is looking fit and fresh heading into this Sunday’s Elimination Final against the Sharks at Allianz Stadium.
In a move by Rabbitohs High Performance staff that was praised by Head Coach Michael Maguire, Inglis underwent minor knee surgery after falling awkwardly in a tackle in Round 24 against the Bulldogs.
Inglis had floating cartilage arthroscopically removed from his knee before quickly returning to training and is now ready to return to the field.
“He’s looking good – looking fresh,” said Reynolds.
“He’s come in with a smile on his face and he’s ready to rip in. He’s been training for a week now, looking in good shape and is moving around really well.
“It’s good to have him back.”
Inglis, a Test and Origin fullback, will add plenty to the Rabbitohs line-up come Sunday, having made 2740 metres with the ball in hand so far this season.
The Rabbitohs will face a Cronulla outfit intent on advancing to Week 2 of the NRL Finals Series, but so are the men in red and green.
“It’s just one week at a time,” said Reynolds of his side’s Finals campaign.
“They’ve had a fantastic season and we have to prepare well and turn up ready to play.”
The Sharks meanwhile will be bolstered by the return of their Test and Origin wrecking-ball, Andrew Fifita, who was this week named on Shane Flanagan’s extended Sharks bench.
“He’s a great player – he’s represented Australia and New South Wales and he’s shown over the years what he’s capable of,” said Reynolds.
“That just comes back to us and turning up ready to play and sticking to our structures.
“It’s a new competition and we’re just excited about playing Finals footy.”
