Greg Inglis is all set to shock the rugby league world by making a surprise return to the sport, with Warrington Wolves.

The Daily Telegraph in Australia are reporting that Warrington have lured the superstar player out of retirement with a one-year deal for the 2021 season.

The 33-year-old retired from the game in April 2019 at the start of the last NRL season, saying he had lost his hunger for the game.

He went on to take a job at South Sydeny Rabbitohs as the club's pathways manager, having spent the last eight years of his playing career with the Bunnies after rising to super stardom as part of the all-conquering Melbourne Storm team.

The Australia international and State of Origin star would be a huge marquee name for Super League alongside Sonny Bill Williams at Toronto Wolfpack and Israel Folau at Catalans Dragons.

The report says Warrington will announce Inglis' signature Wednesday morning, with the player having told close friends he had missed the game.

With the sport on lockdown Super League has been short of news of major signings for next season, with this one unlikely to now be beaten.
