Not that drummer Gillies would be up for it -- a shoulder injury may have put an end to his touring career.

Either way, Inglis ominously warned he planned to make his presence felt at the MCG. "I know people are saying they are big shoes to fill (as captain) and they are - Cam Smith will go down as one of the great leaders of all time in Australian sport ," Inglis said.

Greg Inglis has been hailed the best leader in Australian sport following his strong debut as Queensland captain.

Despite the Maroons losing the State of Origin opener at the MCG, Inglis' performance has received universal praise.

Losing Cameron Smith to representative retirement was always going to be a big blow for Queensland, but they saw an outstanding replacement step up in his place.

So much so that leading rugby league commentator and former NSW player Matthew Johns has declared him better than any captain in any sport in the country.

"I reckon he's the best leader in Australian sport with the way he inspires the side," Johns said on Fox Sports.

Inglis is a hot favourite to succeed Smith and become the new Australian skipper as well when the Kangaroos play their next Test against New Zealand in October.

He would join an elite group to have led their club, state and country at the same time.

Queensland coach Kevin Walters was blown away by Inglis' heroics in his 31st Origin match.

"I thought Greg was our best player," he said.

"If we had 17 Greg Inglises we probably would have won the game.

"But unfortunately we only had one."
