Most Origin tries, 263 NRL appearances – Inglis' stellar career in numbers

After the retirement of Greg Inglis, Omnisport looks into the numbers behind the rugby league great thanks to Opta.

Greg Inglis accomplished it all in his career as the player for South Sydney Rabbitohs, Queensland Maroons and Australia.

Inglis won a NRL premiership at the Rabbitohs, led Queensland's State of Origin dominance and won a Rugby League World Cup with Australia.

The 32-year-old's glittering career, however, is over. An ongoing shoulder problem forcing the NRL great into immediate retirement on Monday.

Following the premature end to a stellar career, Omnisport looks into the numbers behind Inglis thanks to Opta.


18 – Inglis scored 18 State of Origin tries in 32 matches, more than any other player. He crossed for at least one try in nine of the 12 series he featured in.

149 – The former Melbourne Storm star recorded 149 NRL tries, 12th most of any player in premiership history and the most of any player to have played at least one game in 2019.

263 – Inglis made more than 263 NRL appearances after bursting onto the scene for the Storm in 2005. He also played in 20 games or more in nine of 10 seasons between 2007 and 2016, finishing six of those campaigns with a double-digit try tally.

78 – Before swapping the Storm for Rabbitohs in 2011, Inglis scored 78 tries for Melbourne to be ranked fourth all-time, behind Cooper Cronk (92), Matt Geyer (113) and Billy Slater (190).

39 – A Clive Churchill Medal and Golden Boot winner, Inglis represented Australia on 39 occasions following his debut in 2006.

31 – A World Cup winner with Australia, Inglis' international try count is third behind all-time leader Ken Irvine (40).

1 – The number of premierships won by Inglis, who helped South Sydney to NRL supremacy in 2014. The versatile back claimed two titles with the Storm but the 2007 and 2009 victories were stripped from Melbourne due to salary-cap breaches.
