The European Super League will boast three of the biggest names in rugby league in 2021 with Greg Inglis to come out of retirement to join Warrington Wolves next season.
Warrington has confirmed the 33-year-old has signed a one year deal with the Wolves and joins Toronto’s Sonny Bill Williams and Catalans’ Israel Folau in the northern hemisphere.
“I can’t wait to get over there and play for a club that has so much rich heritage. I’ve seen the success the team have had in the Challenge Cup and I want to help the team to deliver more glory,” Inglis said in a statement.
“I’ve played over in England many times in representative footy and love how passionate and vocal the supporters are.
“To get the opportunity to live in the UK, to play for such a powerhouse club that I believe is on the rise is something I’m looking forward to and hopefully I can add value to the team.”
Wolves coach Steve Price said Inglis was ‘refreshed’ and ready to help Warrington to their first title since 1955.
“Having had 12 months out of the sport he has had time to refresh both mentally and physically, and he is focussed on having a positive influence on Warrington Wolves,” Price said.
Former NRL stars Blake Austin and Gareth Widdop already call Warrington home.
