South Sydney Rabbitohs fullback Greg Inglis has made a much-anticipated return to the training paddock eight months after rupturing his ACL in in the opening round of the 2017 season.
In a great sight for Rabbitohs fans, the 30-year-old international had a light session with the squad on Friday under the watchful eye of the club's high performance team and new coach Anthony Seibold at Redfern Oval.
Inglis participated in straight-line running before later joining team drills that included carries out of dummy-half.
Rabbitohs head of high performance Paul Devlin was pleased with the veteran star’s return.
“He’s progressed fantastically well, he’s an absolute freak,” said Devlin.
“He’s starting his re-conditioning return-to-training program now - he’s progressed really, really well. He’s been training at an exceptionally high standard - we’re very, very happy with him.
“Jared Wade (Sports Science and Rehab Coach) and Eddie Farah (Head Physiotherapist) have done a fantastic job with him in rehab, we’ve been very cautious and taken it really slowly with him.
“Fantastic for everybody – staff included – to see Greg out there with the team.”
