Greg Inglis admits he owes everything to Rugby League after announcing his retirement from the sport.
Inglis hangs up the boots with immediate effect after battling a serious shoulder injury.
The 32-year-old will now take up roles in coaching, community, mentoring and ambassadorships at South Sydney Rabbitohs.
He will work under head coach Wayne Bennett and and general manager Shane Richardson in the role of development coach and indigenous player mentor, where he will work across all teams within South Sydney’s pathways, from the under 16s Harold Matthews Cup team to the NRL squad, “to ensure a consistent approach to recruitment, talent identification and skill development”.
Inglis said: “I owe everything to Rugby League and for that I will forever be grateful, and I feel as though I have given everything I’ve had to the game on the field.
“Now it’s time to give more back off the field.
“It’s been a great ride so far, and starting today, I can’t wait to get started on this next part of the journey.”
