Inglis out of NRL opener

Greg Inglis is set to miss South Sydney‘s season opener against the Roosters after picking up an ankle injury in Saturday’s NRL All Stars match.

Medical staff have ruled the former Melbourne centre out for between four and six weeks after suffering a chip fracture and ligament damage.

“Greg may be out of our side for a few weeks and I know he will work as hard as he can to get back as soon as possible, however we have other options in the centres and this will give some young guys a chance to start the season,” coach Michael Maguire said.

“We have guys like Shaune Corrigan and Dylan Farrell who have first grade experience that have had great pre-seasons, so we’ll be looking to those guys to step up and do the job.”

The Rabbitohs have further trial matches against the New Zealand Warriors and St George before kicking off their campaign against their traditional rivals on March 4.
