Inglis keen on AFL too

Melbourne star Greg Inglis says he'll consider following Karmichael Hunt to the AFL, saying he wouldn't rule out making a cross-code switch when his NRL contract expires with the Storm.

The athletic Inglis is tied to the Melbourne club until the end of 2012, but the State of Origin centre says if a solid offer was put to him by the AFL, he'd certainly take it into consideration.

"To be honest, I wouldn't mind having a crack, I played a few games when I was in high school but that was about it," Inglis told AAP on Thursday.

Hunt sent shockwaves through the NRL on Wednesday when he announced he would leave the Brisbane Broncos at the end of the season to sign with AFL newcomers Gold Coast FC.

He'll join the club in May 2010 for their inaugural season in 2011.

NRL boss David Gallop on Wednesday said he believed Hunt's defection was a unique circumstance and it wasn't the start of a cross-code recruitment war.
