NOW that Greg Inglis' comeback as a player is over, Warrington Wolves seem likely to have some space on their salary cap for the remainder of this year.

Former South Sydney Rabbitohs and Australia Test ace Inglis, 34, who came out of almost two years of retirement to give Super League a crack with The Wire, has had his playing contracted terminated with immediate effect by mutual agreement.

This follows confirmation that the hamstring injury sustained in the contest against Huddersfield Giants on May 17 has ruled him out for a prolonged period.

Inglis, who scored two tries in three appearances against Hull KR, Catalans Dragons and Huddersfield, will be staying with the club this year though in a voluntary capacity.

He remains fully committed to a mentoring role, assisting with the club’s performance and Academy set ups in helping the development of the club's young talent.

Inglis said: “It’s unfortunate that it’s come to this but the injury is worse than we originally thought.

“Not too many people get the opportunity and the experience to come over here to the UK and play in Super League, especially at my age, and I want to thank Warrington for the opportunity.

“I’ve got nothing but high praise for the club. They’ve been nothing but good to me and my partner and made us feel welcome from minute one. It’s not just the team it’s the organisation as well that’s done a lot for us.

“I’ll remain here at Warrington as a volunteer in a mentor role helping the young lads coming through as well as being around the club itself and the team to assist in any way I can.

“I said from the start that I wanted to add value to this club and that’s what I’m still firmly focused on now.”

Wolves chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick added: “Although we would have liked to have seen Greg in action more, he has brought tremendous value to our organisation with his leadership qualities and in driving club standards.

“It’s testament to his character that he wishes to remain in Warrington until the end of the season to continue to support the playing group and to mentor a number of our young players.”

The Wire have given no indication if his place in the squad this season will be replaced imminently or at all.
