Greg Inglis says he will leave it to coach Mal Meninga and the NRL to decide whether he will remain Australian rugby league team captain after being charged with drink driving and speeding.

On Monday, Inglis was named Kangaroos skipper by Meninga just hours before he was pulled over by police after being clocked speeding and returning a positive blood alcohol test.

Inglis did not resign or quit the Australian team when he fronted media on Tuesday, as had been speculated by some, saying he hoped to hold on to his captaincy post but would accept any decision taken by those in charge.

Fox Sports said he was clocked speeding by stationary highway patrol officers outside of Lithgow.

Inglis, 31, was returning to Sydney from Dubbo where he had been playing in the Koori Knockout rugby league tournament.

"The driver was issued a field court attendance notice for mid-range drink driving and issued a traffic infringement notice for exceed speed," a police statement said.

Inglis had his license suspended and is scheduled to appear in Lithgow Local Court on November 22.
