Burgess brothers headline World All Stars team

Sam and Tom Burgess have been named in the World All Stars to take on the Indigenous All Stars.

South Sydney pair Sam and Tom, along with James Graham and Gareth Widdop, were the four Englishmen selected in the team.

The concept has changed with the World All Stars replacing the NRL All Stars. Four players minimum from Australia, New Zealand and England have been picked, with the remaining players coming from the likes of Samoa, PNG, Tonga and Fiji.

Cameron Smith was selected as captain and hooker of the World All Stars team, with Kiwi skipper Simon Mannering in the second-row.

Fijian flyer Semi Radradra was named on the wing, with Papua New Guinean Nene McDonald on the extended bench along with Welsh international Tyson Frizell and Fijian prop Kane Evans.

The side will be coached by Brisbane Broncos boss Wayne Bennett. The match against the Indigemous All Stars will be played on February 13 at Suncorp Stadium.
