As Souths battled to click the way coach Michael Maguire knew they could in the wake of plenty of form and fitness concerns in 2016, Inglis was shuffled from fullback to five-eighth (for four games) then centre (for two games) with breakout rookie Cody Walker excelling in the unfamiliar fullback role.Souths won Inglis’s first two games when he was not at fullback but lost the next four and his return to the custodian role coincided with a return to form for the club. The 2014 premiers surged home with four straight wins to at least boost the confidence heading into 2017.”Through that time we were looking at a few different opportunities with Greg. But Greg in my eyes is a fullback,” Maguire said at the launch of the 2017 Charity Shield at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday.”He’s definitely looking forward to staying at fullback,” Maguire added, while also all but confirming Walker would partner Adam Reynolds in the halves to start the season.For his part, Inglis was in no doubt that fullback is his best spot.”I’m definitely staying there, that’s where I want to play,” Inglis said.”Last year you couldn’t help it with the injuries that we had but in saying that, this year moving forward, clean sheet, everyone pretty much knows where their positions are going to be.”Inglis added that he was feeling physically and mentally refreshed after his later return to pre-season training due to the Four Nations tournament, as he heads into what will be a massive year for all the Test players with a World Cup at the end.”I’ll worry about [my workload] down the track, as for now I just want to hit Round 1 fully fit and ready to go for the season ahead. I really want to play good footy, I think we all do, at the club before this rep season gets around,” he said.”I feel fine. I came back mentally refreshed, the body was refreshed so I think it’s a great time to be coming back and on top of that it’s a great squad to be around.”Inglis won’t go to Auckland for the Nines but will play for the Indigneous All Stars in Newcastle the following weekend. That and the Charity Shield against the Dragons will be his only hit-outs before Round 1.
Warehouse Bar + Kitchen are excited to announce that they are renewing sponsorship of the Donegal Gaelic Masters Team for a second season.The team formed last year and competed in the 2016 All-Ireland Masters Championship which ended with Donegal winning the Shield competition which was a great achievement for the team in their first year back on the Championship. The Masters All Ireland Championships are affiliated to the Gaelic Masters Association of Ireland, which is geared towards promoting Gaelic games for players over 40 years who are still active within their respected counties promoting active aging and mental health as their ethos.Paul Gallagher, Chairperson of the Donegal Masters said, “From very small beginnings we gathered momentum bringing together a great squad of players and our management team which has been well supported by the Warehouse Bar & Kitchen.“Without their kind sponsorship we would not have been able to get this team off the ground and gain initial success. We aim to push on this year and achieve even more success going forward.” The Donegal Team has over 50 registered players and training for all games is held at Colaiste Ailigh in Letterkenny. The team have had a great start to the 2017 season so far with three wins from three with upcoming fixtures against Sligo, Cavan and Antrim in the Championship.All post-match events and celebrations will be held at Warehouse Bar + Kitchen who are open daily for lunch and dinner.Donegal Gaelic Masters delighted as Warehouse Bar + Kitchen renew sponsorship was last modified: September 1st, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Gaelic MasterssponsorshipWarehouse Bar and Kitchen
