NRL champion Greg Inglis has been placed on a good behaviour bond but avoided conviction after he was caught drink driving and speeding on the way home from a regional NSW rugby league tournament.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs captain had been named skipper of the national team just hours before he was caught driving 99km/h in an 80 km/h zone on the outskirts of Lithgow on October 1, 2018.

Inglis pleaded guilty to drink driving in November and on Monday NSW's chief magistrate Graeme Henson granted Inglis an 18-month conditional release order, noting his loss of the captaincy, driving and playing suspensions, and substantial charity work.
