Anthony Seibold: Greg Inglis in ‘peak condition’ ahead of do or die clash
Rabbitohs’ coach Anthony Seibold says superstar Greg Inglis is in “peak condition” ahead of his side’s do or die match against St George Illawarra on Saturday.
Inglis has had an injury-interrupted season, but looks to be back in the shape which saw him win a premiership with the club in 2014.
Seibold says he’s been impressed with Inglis’ return to full fitness and there are no concerns over the knock he copped to the ribs in his team’s loss to Melbourne on Friday.
“He had sore ribs, he was fine, there’s never really been any real concern for Greg,” Seibold said.
“From a physical point of view, it certainly helped him (missing Origin III), he worked really hard with our performance staff.
“He’s pretty much in peak condition, I think he’s the same weight he played in (during) the 2014 season.
“He’s lost 10 kilograms since round one, he was 113 kilos in round one and now he’s a tick under 103 kilograms.
“He’s very fit at the moment and I think his performances have been very strong in the last few games.”
Seibold also said Adam Reynolds will be right to go ahead of Saturday’s semi-final clash.
The crafty halfback hurt his shoulder after Melbourne big man Felise Kaufusi gave him a battering in the first half of their Qualifying final.
“Adam Reynolds hurt his AC joint when Kaufusi got him in a really strong tackle,” Seibold said.
“He had a pain-killing injection at half-time and I thought he played really well in the second half to be fair.
“He pulled up quite sore, so he only did bits and pieces at training on Tuesday.
“But he trained the full session today and he’s fully fit and really excited about the opportunity on Saturday.”
South Sydney take on St George Illawarra on Saturday at 7:40pm at ANZ Stadium.
