Rabbitohs fullback and Captain, Greg Inglis, has been judged by his fellow teammates as the best player of season 2015, taking out the 2015 Jack Rayner Players’ Player Award for the second time in his career at tonight’s Red & Green Ball.
Inglis previously picked up the award for season 2012, backing up the effort this year with his performances on the field.
In his 20 appearances for the Club during his first season as full-time Captain, Inglis established himself as one of the team’s true leaders while also producing some memorable moments in the process.
Inglis ran for a total of 2910 metres from the back, on his way to scoring eight tries, while monstering opposition defenders with 73 tackle breaks and also breaking the line on 12 occasions.
The Players’ Player award is named after legendary Rabbitohs player and coach, Jack Rayner. Rayner won five Premierships with South Sydney in six seasons in the Club’s golden era between 1950 and 1955, as both Captain and Captain/Coach. His legacy at the Rabbitohs lives on to this day, remembered as an honest, tough, hard working forward during the days when some of the most brutal Rugby League was played.
Inglis was presented the award by Paul Dunbavin and Brett Chaloner from the 2nd Commando Regiment on behalf of the Rayner family.
Congratulations to Greg on claiming the second Jack Rayner Player’ Player Award of his career.
