Greg Inglis may have played his last game of rugby league after cutting short his stint with Warrington in the Super League due to a nagging hamstring injury.
Inglis tore his hamstring in the May 23 clash with Huddersfield Giants and the injury has proven worse than initially thought.
With Inglis facing a prolonged stint on the sideline, Warrington announced that he and he club had mutually agreed to terminate his contract.
However, the former South Sydney superstar remains fully committed to staying with the Wolves in a voluntary mentoring role for the remainder of the season – assisting with the club’s performance and academy set ups in helping our young and exciting talent to emerge.
“It’s unfortunate that it’s come to this but the injury is worse than we originally thought," Inglis said.
“Not too many people get the opportunity and the experience to come over here to the UK and play in Super League, especially at my age, and I want to thank Warrington for the opportunity.
“I’ve got nothing but high praise for the club. They’ve been nothing but good to me and my partner and made us feel welcome from minute one. It’s not just the team it’s the organisation as well that’s done a lot for us.
“I'll remain here at Warrington as a volunteer in a mentor role helping the young lads coming through as well as being around the club itself and the team to assist in any way I can.
“I said from the start that I wanted to add value to this club and that’s what I’m still firmly focused on now."
Warrington CEO Karl Fitzpatrick said Inglis's influence on the playing group and staff has been outstanding since moving to the UK in January and he has the club’s full support in the next phase of his career.
"Although we would have liked to have seen Greg in action more, he has brought tremendous value to our organisation with his leadership qualities and in driving club standards," Fitzpatrick said.
"It’s testament to his character that he wishes to remain in Warrington until the end of the season to continue to support the playing group and to mentor a number of our young players."
