  • Australian test selector Laurie Daley has called for Inglis to stand down

Instead of celebrating a brilliant Roosters premiership the day after the grand final, the game's focus quickly shifted to the new Australian captain getting busted for drink driving.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs star was pulled over by police and allegedly returned a 0.085 blood alcohol reading just hours after being named the captain of the Kangaroos.

NEWLY named Australia captain Greg Inglis will front the media on Tuesday after being charged with drink driving and speeding just hours after being bestowed the honour.

Cordner will step in as skipper for the October matches against New Zealand and Tonga, with Dane Gagai also added to the squad.

"He deserves full credit for being upfront today by apologising and taking full ownership of his mistake".

"As a player, as a person in this community, it's not good enough".

Inglis explained that he had been drinking on Sunday night and did not leave his hotel to start his drive back to Sydney until around midday yesterday, when he thought he would be OK to drive.

"Inglis has unequivocally and unreservedly apologised, and taken full responsibility, for the incident", the Rabbitohs' statement said.

At a news conference, Inglis was remorseful but said he did not intend to resign the captaincy.

"Once again, I am very sorry".

Inglis was reportedly driving to Sydney after attending the Koori Knockout tournament in Dubbo when he was pulled over for speeding outside of Lithgow.

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said "great player" Inglis "made a poor decision" before saying he hopes to see him "back in a Kangaroos jersey next year".

"Through my playing career, I've been playing for 13 years and I've never had a criminal charge laid against me".

The NRL star failed a breathalyser following an indigenous sports carnival.

"With the Australian captaincy, we'll wait and see what the NRL is going to hand down but it's something that I would really love and to still be Australian captain", Inglis said.

His licence was suspended on the spot and he's due in court on November 18.

"I've let a lot of people down as a proud indigenous role model".

Daley said the charge would likely spell the end of Inglis's tenure as Kangaroos captain before it had even begun.

"I don't think I let my country down".

"I haven't spoken to Greg, the kids and I are still waiting for him to come home, he's not answering his phone, he's still at the game", she said.

While national selector and former Test skipper Laurie Daley said Inglis would have to step down over the matter, the 31-year-old received some words of support from Craig Bellamy, Inglis' former coach at the Melbourne Storm.

"He's let himself down".
