Inglis happy to wing it for Maroons
Put on the wing, at centre, fullback or up the middle, the only thing Greg Inglis cares about his getting his hands on the footy for Queensland.
After a poor game in Origin I, largely due to a throat infection that ruined his preparation, there is a thought Inglis will spend more time on the wing next Wednesday night.
The switch may seem like common one sense on paper, with usual Storm centre Will Chambers currently occupying a wing spot for the Maroons.
However given how good Chambers has been in his first two games in the No.5 it would be a brave move by Mal Meninga should he choose to shuffle the decks.
The last time Inglis was named to start on the wing for Queensland was back in the 2007 Origin series. That year he scored three tries including a double in Game One.
"I would do anything for this team and if that is what it takes then that is what it takes," said Inglis.
"It happened in the past and if Mal wants to go that way then I'm happy to."
In a welcomed contrast to three weeks ago, Inglis cut a much healthier figure as he and his Maroons teammates put on a junior clinic on Thursday for around 200 Melbourne school kids.
The 28-year-old has a special affiliation with the sporting capital, having played 117 games for the Storm between 2005-2010, scoring 78 tries.
He has made several trips down since, mainly as an opposition player with the Rabbitohs, but next Wednesday night will give Melbourne fans who still hold a strong love for GI the chance to cheer him once again.
"I'm looking forward to the big turnout Melbourne is going to have for the Origin match and I'm really looking forward to it," he said.
"I love coming down to Melbourne and playing, it is a great city here and a great sporting city as well. They get out and support any sport as well so I'm just really looking forward to a packed out MCG on Wednesday night."
