Greg Inglis makes return to Rabbitohs

NZN 5/06/2017 Matt Encarnacion and Emma Kemp

Rabbitohs co-captain Greg Inglis has appeared at South Sydney headquarters for the first time since checking himself into mental health clinic with depression.

Inglis spent time with teammates on Tuesday morning before meeting the club's medical staff to recommence his rehabilitation on his knee reconstruction.

His sighting at Redfern Oval will boost a South Sydney side who have lost seven of their past nine games and sit 13th on the NRL ladder.

And their dismal season shows no signs of abating, with star halfback Adam Reynolds set to head into Friday's match against Brisbane under an injury cloud.

Reynolds' knee was heavily strapped on Monday, however he completed Tuesday's training session and was set to take on the Broncos.

While Reynolds' form and fitness have been questioned this season, the Rabbitohs have won just five of 17 games without the former NSW halfback since his debut in 2012.

After a week of soul-searching following their limp last-start defeat to Parramatta, prop George Burgess is adamant the team can recover in time to make the finals.

The Rabbitohs need to win at least eight of their remaining 12 games to reach the traditional 28-point cutoff and feature in September action.

"We've got the players there to go on a bit of a run. We found it towards the back end of last year. We've just got to keep staying positive and trust our training," Burgess said on Tuesday.

He also denied changes needed to be made to coach Michael Maguire's game plan, pointing out how the Rabbitohs eventually found another gear only to fall short.

They lost nine in a row in the middle of the season but ended with a flourish, winning four straight before ultimately finishing five points out of the finals.

"You're always tinkering with the game plan whether you're winning or losing. We're finding out what works best for us," he said.

"We're changing positions a bit as well so we're still finding where our team works best and which combinations flow best for us. We've just got to stay patient."
