Greg Inglis may have been on stunning form in the second half of the NRL season, but not even his ability to break open a game could combat the experience and professionalism of the Melbourne Storm in week one of the playoffs.
Inglis donned Asics Lethal Testimonial 2 IT Indigenous boots for the critical clash against his former teammates, a boot described by Asics as a ‘traditional boot from the old school. With a colourway designed following input from Johnathan Thurston, the Testimonial reflects the indigenous nature of Rugby League in Australia, with a striking finish in black, red and yellow.
Combining ultra-supple kangaroo leather with a radical HG10mm midsole, the Testimonial is at once both incredibly comfortable and extremely versatile.
Inglis’ inability to open up the Storm’s defence effectively scuttled the Rabbitohs hopes of a first round win, such is their reliance on the barn-storming fullback.
Having made his name in Melbourne, Inglis is in his second year with the Rabbitohs, and has been a core member of the Queensland State of Origin side which has achieved unprecedented success over the last 8 years.
The Rabbits have a chance to redeem themselves this week when the meet the Raiders in a sudden-death encounter.
