Inglis set to make ultimate sacrifice


//

South Sydney star Greg Inglis is expected to call time on his NRL career today with the league great reportedly willing to sacrifice the rest of the money owing on his contract so the club doesn't have to eat it on its salary cap for this year and next.

According to a report from The Daily Telegraph, Inglis will meet with Rabbitohs' officials this morning to confirm the news that he's lost the desire to play on due to chronic injuries to his knee and shoulder.

It's said the Origin legend is ready to walk away from a projected figure of $1.5 million for the remainder of his deal, with Inglis already being paid for half of his contract for this season.

Under the new collective bargaining agreement, Inglis is entitled to all the of the money owed in 2019/20, with every penny counting on South Sydney's salary cap for this year and next.

Inglis is said to be conscious of the position it would leave the club and his teammates with his $1 million annual salary, and would be willing to unburden them salary-cap- wise.

The premiership winner is reportedly in line for an ambassador role with the club, while the NRL is also considering bringing Inglis on board due to his massive service to the game.

Those close to Inglis have refused to comment on the situation out of respect for the star .

Damaging at both centre and fullback in club and representative football, Inglis made his name as Melbourne began their dominant era in 2006 and remained part of the Storm's success until forced to leave amidst the salary cap scandal.

He landed at Redfern desperate to end the Rabbitohs' title drought, doing so in the 2014 grand final as he scored the final try and sent the burrow into delirium.

His current try-scoring tally stands at 149 in 263 games, his most recent coming as part of a double against Melbourne in last year's finals series.

He was just as dominant at representative level, forming arguably the greatest centre-wing combination in State of Origin history with Darius Boyd on Queensland's left edge.

There he scored the majority of his 18 Origin tries, while also crossing the line 31 times in 39 Kangaroos appearances.
