Inglis unconcerned by Bennett’s England plan

Greg Inglis is unfazed by speculation that Wayne Bennett plans to select Australian-born NRL players for England for the Four Nations.

A number of Australians eligible for England through heritage grounds have been linked to the side.

“I think what Wayne’s done is great for international league,” Inglis told

“He’s done assistant Kiwis and he’s the head coach [of England] now. I think if he wants to poach potentially Australian English players then go for it.”

Inglis is set to captain the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII in Port Moresby on September 24 when they take on PNG.

“It’s a great honour,” the Souths fullback said.

“I think all captains in the NRL would say it’s a great honour being chosen as a captain by the club and by your peers and to get the phone call and be asked to lead the Prime Minister’s XIII out is a big honour for me.”
