WHATEVER position he has played in, Greg Inglis has excelled.

In his prime, he won Dally M positional awards at full-back and stand-off but large swathes of his career were spent with him in the centres.

Given Anthony Gelling’s off-season departure, a straight swap into that position with Warrington Wolves appears likely but the Australian great insists nothing is decided.

He even mooted an appearance in the pack – not beyond the realms physically at least given his size and power.

“We haven’t had a chat about that yet,” Inglis said when asked where he would be playing.

“I know we have two very good full-backs here so I could end up in the back row or at lock – you never know.

“We’ll wait for another couple of weeks I think before we get into skills, see the dynamic of the team and see where Pricey wants to go with it.”

Having arrived in the UK in early January, Inglis has been able to take a full part in preparations for the 2021 season with his new teammates.

When he eventually makes his debut, he will have been out of the game for two years after announcing his retirement while with South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2019.

His move to England was confirmed last May, leaving him eight months to get his body in the right shape to resume elite sport.

But how has he been doing it?

“I started doing things with Sparta Science over in Australia, doing two sessions a week,” he revealed.

“It was more body function work in the gym – a little bit of cardio and weights – to get the body moving again.

“There was a lot of core work with pilates and yoga as well.

“I’m happy with where I’m at but I know there’s a fair way to go before I’m where I want to be.

“The club understands that but they also know I’ve been out of the game for two years.

“We’ve still got two months to go and I’m confident that within two or three weeks, I’ll be back to where I want to be.”

When the season does get underway, all eyes will be on whether or not Inglis can replicate – or even get somewhere near – the form that marked him out as one of the game’s modern era greats.

Indeed, there are those who feel him coming out of retirement risks him tarnishing the legacy he has built.

However, it is clear Inglis has no time for that particular train of thought.

“I don’t really care what the outside world thinks of me,” he said.

“All I care about is the standards I set for myself and what I expect from my teammates as well.

“That’s the way I am and that’s my mentality – block out the outside noise and concentrate on how I can deliver for the team.

“In terms of people that want to attack you, you just block it out.”
