Legend says GI to 'pay a massive price'


//

Australian selector Laurie Daley has called for Greg Inglis to be stripped of his Kangaroos captaincy just a day after he was given the honour after the superstar centre was charged for drink driving and speeding yesterday afternoon.

Daley said the 31-year-old had let the game down and his leadership position was untenable as coach Mal Meninga weighs up how to handle the situation.

"I’m pretty sure Greg and Mal (coach Mal Meninga) will come to the decision that he needs to step down as captain of his country," Daley told radio show the Big Sports Breakfast. "He’s let himself down, he’s let the game down. And he’ll pay a massive price for that." 

Inglis charged for drink-driving

Inglis was charged with mid-range drink driving and speeding while returning to Sydney from the Koori Knockout in Dubbo.

The Kangaroos and Inglis' club the South Sydney Rabbitohs are yet to comment on the incident but given the national team's push to clean up its culture under the watch of Meninga, it is unlikely that he will escape a significant punishment. 

Second-rower Josh Papalii has previously been stood down from the Test team after pleading guilty in court for drink driving, and if Inglis is dealt a similar punishment, Meninga is almost certain to promote Blues and Roosters skipper Boyd Cordner to the captaincy.

A decision one way or another is expected to be made today and media personality Ray Hadley said it was important that Inglis got the appropriate support to deal with the consequences, particularly in the wake of a public battle with mental health issues.

"Greg made a very silly error of judgement yesterday," Hadley told Today.

"He’ll suffer a far more significant penalty for his indiscretion than the other people that were detected drink driving.

"What he did yesterday was silly, stupid and he’ll suffer a significant penalty for it.

"He’ll still enjoy my support. I’m standing next to him because he has a very important role to play when it comes to Australians and mental health."
