Inglis, the Queensland and Kangaroos regular who won the Golden Boot as international player of the year in 2009, has not played since damaging his ACL in the opening game of the season in March.

Inglis was in the Australia team that beat New Zealand 34-8 in the Four Nations final at Anfield in November but has already been ruled out of the end-of-year World Cup.
