Steve Price praises impact Greg Inglis has already made on Warrington team

Warrington head coach Steve Price says Greg Inglis has already made a significant impact on the club.

The 34-year-old hung up his boots in April 2019 but has made a comeback after signing a one-year deal with Warrington.

Inglis hung up his boots after making 263 NRL appearances, which included five Grand Finals for Melbourne Storm and South Sydney Rabbitohs, and winning 39 caps for Australia.

Price said: “Greg’s been fantastic around the playing and the coaching group.

“He’s just a real humble, genuine guy who understands what it takes to get the job done.”

Price will put his team through their paces in Chris Hill’s testimonial match against Leigh next Thursday in the build-up to the opening league game against Castleford on Sunday, March 28, but Inglis has warned it could take him up to six weeks to get up to speed.

He said: “I’m confident within myself but, with the pitches over here, there’s a bit more emphasis on the lower end of your body. We’ll wait and see how my first hit-out goes.

“You can train all you like but, until you get that 80-minute performance, on game day especially, you just never know how you’re going to handle it.

“I’ll allow myself that little bit of leeway. If I can get to round three at 100%, I’ll be stoked, if it takes till round six, it takes till round six.

“I’m not putting pressure on myself and neither is the club or coaching staff, you’ve got to keep in mind I have been out of the game for two years. It’s small steps.”
