Today's Birthday, January 15: Australian rugby league star Greg Inglis (1987 - ).
Greg Inglis' dream of leading the Kangaroos was dashed last year when caught drink driving mere hours after being announced as national skipper.
Inglis was stripped of the Australian captaincy and was suspended for two-Tests despite the South Sydney superstar initially standing his ground.
The 32-year-old was charged with mid-range drink driving and speeding and later pleaded guilty in Sydney court.
Born in 1987 in Kempsey, NSW, Inglis started playing rugby league at a young age with his cousins.
At 15, he was spotted at a junior sports carnival and within a matter of months was signed to the Melbourne Storm.
But it wasn't until in 2005, following a bumper season with Brisbane's Norths Devils, that Inglis was finally added to the Storm's full-time playing roster.
He made his NRL debut for the club that year against Parramatta before becoming the team's fullback and winger replacement.
Inglis was controversially named to Queensland's State of Origin side in 2006 despite questions about his eligibility.
An injury-plagued season couldn't stop him securing a mega four-year deal with the Storm and making his Australian Test debut.
With his switch to five-eighth in 2007 came his first grand final win, a feat replicated in 2009, along with a Clive Churchill Medal.
Inglis continued his good form to claim rugby league's Golden Boot award in 2009 as the world's best player.
But his final two years with the Storm ended in scandal as the NRL club was stripped of their premiership titles over a salary cap rort.
Keen for a fresh start, Inglis joined South Sydney in 2011 and tasted premiership glory again in 2014 before taking over as Rabbitohs skipper the next season.
The versatile Inglis, who can play fullback, wing, centre and five-eighth, played just over 40 minutes of the NRL season in 2017 after suffering an ACL injury.
Inglis, who replaced Cameron Smith as Queensland skipper this year, returned to lead the Rabbitohs to a preliminary final berth in 2018.
Next season he'll have a new coach in Wayne Bennett, who hasn't guaranteed him the No.1 jersey for 2019.
Inglis is married to Sally Robinson.
