Rabbitohs name George Piggins Medallist
Rabbitohs Captain, Greg Inglis, has taken the Club’s top prize for the second time in his career, after being named George Piggins Medallist onstage by Michael Maguire, Bob McCarthy and Ron Coote, as the Club’s Best and Fairest player at the Red and Green Ball.
The award is the second of the night for Inglis, who earlier picked up the Jack Rayner Players’ Player Award - also for the second time in his career.
Season 2015 marked Inglis’ first year as full-time Captain after widely being considered a leader within the Club throughout his tenure.
After playing his role for the Indigenous All Stars in February, Inglis started his time as Rabbitohs skipper in the best possible fashion, by leading the Club to its first ever World Club Championship victory in what was a record 39-0 score-line against St Helens at Langtree Park in the UK.
Inglis would go on to appear in 20 matches for the red and greens in 2015, while also playing an integral role in Queensland recapturing the State of Origin trophy – Inglis scoring vital four-pointers for the Maroons in their quest for glory.
For the Rabbitohs Inglis scored eight tries while running for a total of 2910 metres with the ball in hand. But his ability to set up four-pointers was equally impressive, topping the team in terms of try-assists with 13 – four more than anyone else in the side.
