Inglis Developing Rabbitohs Talent
Sidelined captain Greg Inglis has been very busy behind the scenes at Redfern Oval mentoring and working with our young and talented outside backs. Using his wealth of experience, Inglis is pushing the Rabbitohs back five to reach their potential in 2017.
With established centres Aaron Gray and Hymel Hunt both sitting on the sidelines, it's been a steep learning curve for young backs like Robert Jennings, Siosifa Talakai and Braidon Burns.
Between Jennings, Burns and Talakai there is 24 NRL games of experience. Inglis has played 242 NRL games as well as representing Australia 39 times and Queensland 30 times.
Inglis was made a part of Maguire's coaching staff after suffering his ACL injury in round one and has been working hard at the Simply Energy High Performance Centre with the playing group.
"He's been helping out the back five a lot," said Rabbitohs centre Robert Jennings.
"He's showing us ways we can improve our game and helping with little areas we can fix. It's a massive help to the team - especially us young boys in the back five."
Siosifa Talakai feels GI's input is setting up the Rabbitohs to produce some fearsome combinations on the edges.
"I've got a lot to improve," said Rabbitohs centre Siosifa Talakai.
"My defence and getting my combinations with Reyno, Burnsy, AJ and Gussy. We're working on our edge and I think if we can nail that down we can be an unstoppable force.
"Greggy's been a lot of help. He not only helps me, he helps everyone else. He's always around tipping us up on what we need to improve and always giving us advice. When a player of that calibre comes to help you just want to take it all in."
