At he can put his feet up in retirement.
My all time favourite player to watch. The greatest fullback ever and one of the best players ever. Definitely has a bit of grub about him though but I put that down to spending all that time with the King of all Grubs himself...Cameron Smith.
The media dick riding is going to be sickening.
Edit: the way he came back from those injuries to be better than ever and playing at the top of his game into his mid 30's is what set him apart from other fullbacks. Age did not weary this merkin
When Inglis was at Storm Bellamy once said something along the lines of. "If Greg had the work ethic of Billy Slater, he'd be the best player in the game".
The unspoken, "He doesn't", echoed louder than an AC/DC gig.
Lol @ Inglis
Yep...usually towards your face!
Now we can look forward to listening to him every 2nd game. Yay!
Conniving grub. Always wanted to see him bashed.
Gifted athlete, outstanding fullback (after the four or five seasons it took for him to learn to tackle like a fullback should).
Respect for his determination in the face of talent scout ignorance. The long drive to Bashup Park, to try out for a first grade spot in the Brisbane comp, and the hope of QLD Cup.
Good for him. As long as we don’t have to put up with him on the telly.
Hilarious this is being completely overshadowed by the Griffin Show at Penrith.
Best fullback I've ever seen. I will be one of the priveleged few who gets to see his final home game live in a few weeks. Looking forward to it.
Ponga has big shoes to fill.
And if Billy had the talent Inglis still does...
I still think I rate Inglis higher than all you posters here.
Have your billy, Greg is the man.
Won't be missed by me, in fact will be glad he's gone. Overrated because of the players he's always had around him and an absolute choker when wearing green and gold.
No It was Anthony Minichello.. If he didn't get injured he would be head and shoulders above Slater as the greatest modern day fullback..
1) he did.
2) he isn't
Rumour has it the 2018 Clive Churchill medal is already engraved with his name on it!
The "If Only" Hall of Fame has some illustrious names in it.
Bevan French >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Billy Slater
One hell of a retirees class this year.
Come on you retiring centres.
Separate names with a comma.
