New South Sydney captain and rugby league superstar Greg Inglis has confirmed he is “looking around” despite being contracted to the Rabbitohs NRL club until 2017.
Inglis’ manager Allan Gainey had already suggested there was plenty of interest in Inglis in both rugby league and rugby union and the Australian international did little to water down the prospects of a move.
“I’m contracted to 2017 but I’m still looking at different options,” he said on his arrival in Manchester ahead of Sunday’s World Club Challenge clash with Super League champions St Helens.
“Years pass that quick and we’re in 2015 now so I’m just keeping all the doors open and all my options open. There is no harm in looking around.”
Inglis confirmed that he had spoken to former Souths teammate Sam Burgess, who was bought out of his contract with Souths by Bath, about the difficulties in switching codes.
“I’ve spoken to a lot of people about different areas of the sporting arena,” he said. “Sammy enjoys it. Whether or not I will is a different story.”
