Inglis signing at Broncos delayed

A dispute over new player contracts has prevented Brisbane from making official the prized signing of superstar Greg Inglis.

Brisbane Broncos recruitment director Andrew Gee has been forced to cancel a meeting with Inglis and his manager Allan Gainey on Friday to sign the two-year deal, because of concerns by the Rugby League Players Association.

The RLPA were on Tuesday given five days by the NRL to review the new contract guidelines.

In the wake of Melbourne's serial salary cap rorting, the player, his manager and club chief executives now have to sign statutory declarations that all figures on contracts have been revealed.

"We were going to sign the contract tomorrow (Friday)," said Gee as Inglis remained unsigned.

"We'll have to try and reschedule it but it'll depend on what the player's association decides to do."

That decision will not be known until at least next week when Brisbane have a hectic schedule, including a mini camp on the Sunshine Coast as they prepare for what could be a season defining clash with the Warriors in Auckland.

The Broncos will spend two days in camp before flying to New Zealand next Wednesday, finalising preparations across the Tasman.

If they need to win their final game against Canberra, the Inglis signing may have to go on the back burner, although Gee would prefer to have it tucked away before the finals.
