‘I Was Shattered I Took That Personally’ Emotional Greg Inglis Explains How Mark Gasnier Changed Everything

Rugby League legend Greg Inglis sat down with The Rush Hour with Gus, Jude & Wendell and answered the question, what’s the one moment you’d like to relive?


Greg Inglis retired with a trophy cabinet of dreams, especially the section with the countless State of Origin shields, yet the Maroons legend had a moment from the famed series that stuck with him.

‘I would say Game 1 in Sydney,

‘Mark Gasnier absolutely towled me up and I walked in with my tail in between my legs.

‘I was shattered because I took that personally.’

Inglis became emotional sharing the story, as he copped a lot of flack after the 18-10 loss in Sydney.

‘I didn’t do my homework as much as I should have.

‘Gaz was 100%, I was about 95% and that 5% really shows a difference in class.

‘That particular moment in Origin, I thought I was there but I wasn’t there.

‘Mal [Meninga] grilled me about it, really came at me.’

Yet Inglis responded in true fashion, with a man of the match performance in Game 2.

The 30-0 victory marked the beginning of a man who would go on to dominate the Origin arena.
