Well I definitely want it canned, the 2015 game was a joke. Only weeks before the competition proper, our fullback was forced to play about 60 minutes at **** lock for the Indigenous side because they pretty simply don't produce many NRL standard forwards.

Was an absolute stitch up.

Also, watch Wayne Bennett choose every clubs best player, and then choose jack reed from the broncos

NRL must promote tolerance in wake of Adam Goodes booing, says Preston Campbell

NRL All Stars founder Preston Campbell believes the fixture has taken on deeper significance in the light of the hounding of former AFL star Adam Goodes, saying rugby league must continue to preach tolerance and respect among players and fans.

The All Stars match has been given a tweak ahead of its 2016 instalment at Brisbane's Lang Park, with an indigenous side now set to take on a World All Stars that includes a minimum of four NRL players from Australia, New Zealand and England.

They do need to, all sports need to, but this is just money sucking.
We have a decision. We're going to the board.

You can see that Jarrod Croker initiates the contact.

More backs than you know what to do with but not a decent front rower in sight. Jack Wighton will end up playing 2nd row again.

My forwards would be:

1) Andrew Fifita
2) Sam Thaiday
3) Ryan James
4) David Fifita

There are heaps of 2nd rowers so there shouldn't be an issue moving James and Thaiday into the front row.

Sam Burgess will make his return in the All Stars match in February

SAM Burgess’ first competitive game of rugby league is likely to be the World All Stars fixture next February - and against South Sydney teammate Greg Inglis.

Considering Burgess does not return to Bunnies training until after Christmas, that will mean he would have just a month to prepare for the Auckland Nines.

Kangaroos war cry a step closer

Kangaroos captain Cameron Smith will for the first time be invited to participate in cultural activities with the Indigenous All Stars team during All Stars week in a significant step towards incorporating an Indigenous war cry into future Australian Test teams.

To be coached by Laurie Daley and Wayne Bennett respectively, the Indigenous All Stars and newly-badged World All Stars teams will be unveiled in Brisbane on Tuesday ahead of the sixth staging of the event at Lang Park on Saturday, February 13.
