South Sydney name Inglis for Round One

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have named star recruit Greg Inglis in the centres for their season opener against the Sydney Roosters on March 11.

Inglis will don the number four jersey and partner rookie Dylan Farrell in what should prove a dynamic centre pairing. The forward pack is as predicted, with Ben Ross likely to make his overdue return to the NRL off the bench following a lengthy lay off due to a neck problem.

Backrowers Michael Crocker and Jason Clark were not considered due to injury.

The club has named their squad earlier than expected, with most teams anticipated to release their Round One line-ups on Tuesday, March 8.

The Rabbitohs meet the Roosters on Friday, March 11 at 7:30pm at the Sydney Football Stadium.
