“It’s a decision I’ve made purely on my own and something I’ve been thinking about in the last two and a half months,” Inglis said.
“I’ll be giving away the game but staying around this club hopefully for a long time after I retire.”
“For the next two years I’ll be giving everything I can to this great club. 2019 will be my last representative season therefore next year I’ll be solely concentrating on the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
“As this will come as a surprise to a lot of people, I think it’s time for me to hang the boots up at the end of my contract.”

“I’ve been fortunate enough to represent my country, my state, and my people and those are memories that I will cherish forever,” he said.
