    I know I'm biased, but he is the epitome of a club legend.

    Inglis - one of the greatest Queenslanders ever.

    you could put Lewis centre, Hoffman second row, Mannering lock. Lewis was a good centre.

    The turncoat filled his boots against some of the weakest NSW backlines ever assembled. Slater puts in every week too, unlike Inglis.

    That's exactly why all that 'immortal Greg Inglis" talk shits me. I've found him overrated as he only plays well when he wants to.

    Put Beau Scott in the centres since Hoffman is a better backrower anyway.

    I'd have to agree with you. I disagree that a non-tackler should become a future immortal though.

    I'm finally old enough now to say I've watched a legends career from start to finish. Still remember first time I saw him on tv in his debut and now 16 years on he's ready to move on. Little bit saddened tbh

    As a fan of NSW and Cronulla I for one am glad the f**ker is going.
    I’m glad he was injured for the 2016 grand final too.

    Ah yes you and you’re paranoid buddies at hq delude yourselves into thinking that the Cowboys, Sharks and Storm premierships were purposely rigged to suit an agenda. Whilst the Sharks and Storm were the best teams of 2016 and 2017 and won because they were the best teams that year.

    Just. Plain. Stupid.

    Billy has done more with his smarts and work ethic than Inglis will ever achieve - no matter how naturally talented.
