Rabbitohs skipper, Greg Inglis, learnt plenty about being Captain during his first full season in the role in 2015, and is now looking forward to building on that experience next season.
The two-time George Piggins Medallist returned to the training paddock this week after a well-earned break, and spoke to Rabbitohs.com.au about a range of topics, including the Captaincy.
“I took a lot out of last year, there’s no doubt about that, just seeing different things and knowing how players react to the way you talk to them – just different things like that,” said Inglis.
“Coming into the second year now, it’s going to be challenging, but tell me what season’s not challenging.”
The Test fullback said he was feeling both mentally and physically fresh following his break, after an off-season that saw him play no international football owing to the inactivity of the Australian side. For Inglis, not playing during the latter months of the year was a positive experience.
“It did (feel different) but in a sense it was good,” said Inglis.
“Throughout the season, you hardly ever spend good quality time with the family because we’re just training, we play and have stuck to this routine.
“To get away and spend time with your loved ones – it’s really good and refreshing of the mind as well.”
