AUCKLAND - Rugby league's biggest names, including Greg Inglis, are set to commit to next year's NRL Nines after the stunning success of the inaugural event.

Due to the late season finish of last year's World Cup a number of NRL superstars were rested from this year's Auckland tournament.

But players will have plenty more time to rest up at the end of this season before next year's edition.

South Sydney coach Michael Maguire said Inglis and Issac Luke were among two of his players he had to hold back from playing in the two-day event at Eden Park.

"The pre-season was very short this year and that is why we held some players back but the likes of Greg Inglis and Issac Luke, they were busting to play," Maguire said.

"They are big fans of the concept but after a big finish to last year and what we have in front of us you have to consider that.

"Issac was asking to play every day and this type of game would really suit him, but he had a massive year last year and we had to consider that.

"The event comes at a good time in the pre-season."
