The retired NRL legend Greg Inglis continues to shuffle his property portfolio, after selling out of Sydney.

The former South Sydney Rabbitoh has just bought a Queensland duplex in partnership with his estranged wife, Sally Robinson.

Robinson, who separated from Inglis last year, moved back to Queensland with their two young children.

They have paid $920,000 for a resort-style home nearby in Shorncliffe, a coastal suburb northeast of Brisbane. The recently renovated, decade-old two-storey home has six bedrooms. Both levels of the home have three bedrooms.

There’s also a saltwater swimming pool at the new buy.

The purchase has prompted the listing of Inglis’s long-time Bargara apartment in the Bundaberg region.

Inglis, who returned to Rabbitohs training this week for the first time since checking in to rehab, is set to make a loss on the apartment that he bought brand new.

He paid $590,000 in 2008, shortly after the Global Financial Crisis hit.

Prices haven’t recovered in the Queensland coastal region and Inglis is asking $475,000 for the two-bedroom ocean-facing apartment in the Manta apartment complex.

He is offering it fully furnished through Coastline Realty agent Emma Bauer.

It comes as Inglis, who has been a Little Bay-based renter, recently offloaded his former Coogee home for $2,475,000 through McGrath agent Marnie Seinor.

Inglis had bought the Coogee semi after his move from Melbourne at the end of 2010.

He paid $1.1 million for what was then a two-bedroom federation home and then transformed the property into a three-level, four-bedroom home, behind its period facade.

The Kempsey-born star retired from rugby league earlier this year.

He was first signed with the Canberra Raiders at 15, but didn’t play a game before moving to Brisbane and playing for Melbourne Storm’s feeder club before being added to the Storm’s playing roster in 2004.
