    Re: Indigenous all-stars team announced

    It was a good game to be at last year. The noise was defening. Although i couldn't help but feel a little racist! I mean, every one white was going for the NRL All Stars and everyone black was going for the Indigenous All Stars.

    It was George that put that slightly late bump on Sam Burgess that crumpled him pretty quickly in this years game.  Lol.  It was a good welcome to the nrl for him.

    Good work George, congrats on the call up. Hopefully he has a blinder and brings some momentum back with him.

    I remember going to a test match and cheering when Slater dropped the ball, I had to explain to people that even in the green and gold Slater is still a grub.

    Why don't we cut out the racist stuff and name an "AUSTRALIAN" all star team?Oh,that would be the kangaroos!Don't get any media play announcing an AUSTRALIAN team-has to have some left wing "vibe" to it.

    Settle down guy's all it is a Celebration of Rugby League (that helps a certain part of our community).
    Think of it this way where else could you see the current Australian Captain, the current Kiwi Captain and a few Pom's all playing in the same team nowadays with the salary cap

    - Once a player from one club is placed in the team, no other player from that club can be chosen.
    - If a player withdraws from the team due to injury, he will be replaced by someone from the bench.
    - The open bench spot will then be replaced by someone from the injured player’s club, with the new player having recorded the second highest number of votes from that club, either as a forward, back or utility, depending on the position needed for the bench.

    The NRL All Stars will play the Indigenous All Stars in the 2011 Harvey Norman Rugby League All Stars at Skilled Park on the Gold Coast on Saturday, February 12.

    I'm actually dusting our first three games if he's playing centres as losses. Surely Will Hopoate, Michael Oldfield or Dean Whare (if fit) would be much better choices? Forwards like:-

    01. Brett Stewart
    02. Michael Robertson
    03. William Hopoate / Dean Whare
    04. Jamie Lyon
    05. David Williams
    06. Keiran Foran
    07. Daly Cherry-Evans
    08. Jason King
    09. Matt Ballin
    10. Brent Kite
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Shane Rodney
    13. Glenn Stewart

    14. Terrence Seu Seu / Liam Foran
    15. George Rose
    16. Joe Galuvao
    17. Tony Williams
