Greg Inglis says he is looking forward to testing his skills in Super League after coming out of retirement to join Warrington Wolves for the 2021 campaign.

Inglis initially called it a day back in 2019 after an eight-year stint with South Sydney due to ongoing injury issues, but he is back to full fitness and has got the urge to play again after being in a coaching role with the Rabbitohs.

It was just an opportunity that I couldn't pass up.

The 33-year-old Australian boasts a wealth of experience and he will bring that winning feeling to Warrington, having won three NRL titles, a World Cup and appeared in 32 State of Origin matches during his career.

Inglis, who has won individual awards that include the Clive Churchill Medal and Wally Lewis Medal, will be hoping to deliver a first Super League crown for the Wolves, who have lost in all four Grand Final appearances.

Speaking about his decision to make a competitive return and join Warrington, the New South Wales-born star says the chance to play in England was too good to turn down.

"It was just an opportunity that I couldn't pass up," Inglis told the media. "There was a couple of clubs that reached out after they found out I wanted to play again, but it was only ever Warrington that I spoke to. There was no other team I edged towards.

"I had a conversation with Clarky (Jason Clark) about joining and it ended with my first training session on Saturday. I'm looking forward to getting back in the rhythm and daily routine that I've been used to for so long."

Warrington are 7.50 to win Super League XXVI, while defending champions St Helens are 3.00 to triumph for the third straight season.
