Inglis reveals extent of thumb injury

Injured Queensland Maroons captain Greg Inglis has taken to social media to reveal the extent of his thumb injury which has ruled him out of Origin Game III in Brisbane next Wednesday.

Inglis damaged his right thumb in South Sydney's nail biting win over North Queensland in Cairns on Sunday. 

The withdrawal of Inglis through injury forced Queensland coach Kevin Walters to rejig his backline to cover the loss of his strike centre; with Corey Oates earning a recall via the wing, with Dane Gagai moving inside.

In his absence; the experienced Billy Slater will assume the captaincy role for the Maroons in his final - and 31st - appearance for Queensland.
