Rabbitohs Development Coach Greg Inglis has decided to resume his football career in the Super League competition with the Warrington Wolves in 2021, a decision fully supported by the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Inglis will finish his coaching commitments with the Rabbitohs later this year to head to England to come out of retirement to play for the Wolves, a Club with which the Rabbitohs have a great relationship.
Inglis is regarded as one of the best players of all time and he leaves Australia with the blessing of the Rabbitohs.
Greg has made a wonderful contribution to this Club, both on and off the field, and following our discussions with him, we believe it is in his best interests for him to resume his playing career with Warrington next year,Blake Solly Rabbitohs CEO
“We have a wonderful relationship with Warrington so we know he is heading to a strong and well-run organization under the guidance of co-owner Simon Moran, CEO Karl Fitzpatrick and Head Coach Steve Price.
“Our Clubs have shared a number of players over the years, including Bryson Goodwin who is currently with us, Jason Clark who is one of a number of former NRL players at the Wire, and Matt King who both played and coached at South Sydney. We played Warrington here at Redfern Oval in a pre-season match in 2012 and we battled it out for the Physical Disability Rugby League World Club Challenge at ANZ Stadium in 2018.
