Inglis will share the triumphs and tribulations of his career with South Burnett residents as the final captain for the captain's dinner in aid of Relay for Life on Saturday, July 27.

Dinner committee member and Relay for Life patron Carl Rackemann said it was very exciting when the former South Sydney Rabbitohs player confirmed he was good to go.

"I think we have all gone with him this year and the last few years with injury and culminating in his decision to retire," he said.

"In coming to the dinner he will be very much among friends.

Rackemann said Wayne Bennett played a key role in securing Inglis for the dinner.

Inglis is the final captain to be confirmed for the dinner alongside former Queensland and Australian cricketer Greg Ritchie and record-holding solo sailor Jessica Watson.
