IN the Guardian over the past few weeks, there has been a great of debate over the signing of the Australian centre Greg Inglis and if he will become the greatest Australian player the club has ever signed.

I know he is an excellent signing, and I have followed his career over the years both internationally and in the NRL.

He is big, fast, fearless and clever and an all-round great player, and I am sure he will become a great asset at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

But he will be following the likes of Brian Bevan – world record try scorer with 796 tries, 740 of them for Warrington, but never capped by Australia and was one of the few players along with Harry Bath, another great signing from Australia, who also played for the British Empire.

Bobby Fulton played for Warrington in the early part of his career and went on to both captain and coach Australia.

Les Boyd, the best prop forward I ever watched, came here as a bad boy with a terrible reputation but returned home a hero.

Bob Jackson, the most hard-working and consistent forward I ever saw represent Warrington, never let you down.

Brian Johnson, who coached Warrington to Wembley.

There have been many Australians, a lot of them world class players.

Alfie Langer, Andrew Johns, Michael Monaghan, Matt King – these are just a few of the Australians who played and played well for Warrington.

There are a lot more, so Greg you have some very hard acts to follow.
