No less a figure than rugby league legend Andrew Johns rates Inglis as "the best player of his generation - there's nothing he can't do".
That's some praise for a 21-year-old, but the awesomely talented Melbourne Storm centre - blessed with truly exceptional handling and running skills - is already firmly established as one of the NRL's top stars.
Inglis turned down lucrative offers from union before the World Cup, and Kangaroos supporters - and league fans in general - will be grateful when the action starts.
