All Stars named


Benji Marshall will lead an NRL All Stars side featuring debutants Adam Reynolds, James Tamou and Billy Slater against an indigineous team in Brisbane next month.

Penrith forward Tim Grant will also appear after being picked by coach Wayne Bennett for the match in Brisbane.

Fans voted for a representative of each of the NRL clubs to appear for the side to meet coach Laurie Daley’s Indigenous All Stars.

Daley said: “We certainly have some strike-power in our team and when you look at the calibre of players we have, I think fans will be excited at the style of footy we will play.

“The NRL All Stars is a formidable side with big, powerful, class players in key positions, but I know how determined our team is to perform well and I think we have a squad capable of achieving something special.”

Bennett meanwhile assured fans his selection should make for an entertaining game.

“There is no doubt the fans will be in for an entertaining game with the great mix of talented and exciting backs and powerful forwards in both teams, as well as the blend of experience and youth,” Bennett said.

“Just as important as the game though is the whole week of All Stars activities and community events and I commend the players for their ongoing commitment to the All Stars concept which continues to help make a real difference to the lives of many Australians.”
