Hull KR hoping Inglis 'runs out of steam'

Hull KR coach Tony Smith is hoping Greg Inglis runs out of steam in his long-awaited comeback match.

The 34-year-old former Australia Test centre will make a belated Super League debut for Warrington in their round five fixture against Smith's men at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday morning (AEST).

After being out of the game for two years, Wolves coach Steve Price has been holding back the former Melbourne and South Sydney player but says the time is right for him to play and Smith knows the danger he can pose.

"I've rarely seen a better rugby league player in my existence," said former Warrington coach Smith.

"Whether he can get back to some of those levels, let's just hope it's not this week.

"I hope he runs out of steam. It's up to us, how good he is will depend on how good we are as well."

Rovers, who finished bottom last year, go into the game in a rich vein of form.

Inglis is set to take the place of his fellow countryman Jake Mamo while Price must decide whether to recall Blake Austin after leaving him out of the side for the trip to Catalans Dragons a week ago.
