Inglis and Sutton join Rabbitohs coaching staff

The Rabbitohs have added recently retired ex-captains John Sutton and Greg Inglis to their 2020 coaching staff as development coaches.

The 34-year-old Sutton hung up the boots at the end of 2019 with a club-record 336 games and a resume that included captaining the club to its drought-breaking 2014 title, while Inglis played 146 of his 263 games at Redfern with 39 Tests and 32 Origins before retiring after round two in 2019.

They will work under head coach Wayne Bennett and assistant coach Jason Demetriou in 2020.

In a statement on Monday, the club said their roles would include work across all grades from pathways to the NRL squad.

"The experience on the field that John (Sutton) and Greg (Inglis) bring is unmatched in the modern-day game," club general manager of football Shane Richardson said.

"They will be able to pass on everything they have learned over the past 20 years at the top levels of the sport to our next generation of Rabbitohs and help prepare them for the steps up in class we expect many of these players to take in the coming seasons."

Jersey Flegg coach Ben Rogers moves up to the Canterbury Cup side with Joe O'Callaghan appointed from Wynnum-Manly to coach the under 20s.

NSW Women's Premiership coach Dean Widders, under 18s coach Wayne Collins and under 16s coach Gavin Sheehan all continue in their roles.

Former assistant coach Willie Peters and Canterbury Cup coach Shane Millard have departed for assistant coaching roles at other clubs.

"All round we have a strong coaching crew, complemented by our high performance team led by Jarrod Wade, and I'm confident in their abilities and experience to lead and teach our players at all levels in 2020 and beyond," Richardson said.
