The ex-wife of NRL star Greg Inglis has broken her silence on their sudden split and his high-profile rehab stint.

Sally Inglis revealed the South Sydney Rabbitohs star is in a ‘better place’ after staying at a no-contact rehabilitation facility, in the wake of hanging up his boots.

The former Queensland Origin captain retired in April with 18 months left on his contract and struggled with life after football, before checking into rehab in May.

The Inglises, who share five-year-old Nate and two-year-old Quinn, married in 2010 before breaking up in 2017.

In the months after leaving rehab, Ms Inglis praised her ex-husband’s recovery.  

‘I did notice he’d gotten pretty quiet and after being in there (rehabilitation) he is slowly just getting stronger and stronger,’ Ms Inglis told the Courier-Mail.

Inglis would call their children every day while in rehab and visited them the moment he was out, she said. 

The former couple’s friendship has also strengthened in the wake of the rehab visit and separation, as the pair are more likely to check in on each other.  

‘He’s in such a better place and because we have the kids now by ourselves we check in on each other so much more than we ever did when we were married, so we are probably better friends now than we have been since having kids,’ Ms Inglis said.

In a bid to seek privacy, Ms Inglis was renting a home on the Gold Coast as the NRL star made headlines for his retirement and rehab stint. 

‘That’s been our life for basically our whole adult life. We have to deal with the fact that if we do something everyone is going to react because we are public people, so I don’t really know any different,’ she said.

Ms Inglis said her children ‘adore’ their father and think their dad is just like anyone else’s, despite the TV fame.   

In terms of the couple’s separation, Ms Inglis said she now knows the couple ‘100 per cent’ did the right thing and have become ‘stronger’ individuals and parents.
