Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga says Greg Inglis remains very much in the picture for Australian selection for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Australia will open the Cup with a match against England on October 27 in Melbourne.

Meninga (pictured) says despite Inglis being set to miss the entire NRL season after injuring his knee on the weekend, he will be given every chance of proving his fitness and maintaining his spot in the Australian side for the Cup.
