Sports | REUTERS 21 May 2020

Australian Greg Inglis, the 2009 rugby league world player of the year, is coming out of retirement to play in England's Super League for the Warrington Wolves next year.

Inglis, 33, won two World Cups with Australia and was part of the Queensland team that dominated State of Origin for a decade before hanging up his boots last year. He helped the Sydney Rabbitohs win their first National Rugby League title in 43 years in 2014.

"I've played over in England many times in representative footy and love how passionate and vocal the supporters are," the versatile back said.

Wolves hailed his signing as one of the biggest in Super League history.

The Rabbitohs, co-owned by Hollywood actor Russell Crowe, had retained Inglis as a coach after his retirement but said he would depart with their blessing at the end of this season.
