2019 All Stars: Teams and Game Day

NRL Women's All Stars teams named

The NRL Women’s All Stars teams have been named today, ahead of the All Stars match to be played in Melbourne on Friday 15 February.

A host of NRL Premiership players are amongst both teams, together with players that have represented Australia and New Zealand.

NRL General Manager of the Women’s Elite Program, Tiffany Slater, said the match was a welcome return for women’s rugby league in 2019.

"Our women’s game had a landmark year in 2018, following the success of the Rugby League World Cup in 2017, where Australia took on New Zealand in the Final," Ms Slater said.

"It’s great to see the All Stars concept back again in 2019 and looking at the talent across both teams, fans should be set for an exciting match."

The Women’s All Stars match is part of a triple-header of football at AAMI Park, with touch football and the Men’s All Stars match also part of the action.

The Men’s and Women’s All Stars teams will be in Melbourne in the week leading up to the matches on 15 February, with teams taking part in a series of welcome events, community activities and training sessions.

Tickets are on sale, with NRL club member adult tickets starting at $20 and family passes from $45.

General sale tickets start from $25 for an adult and $50 for a family pass.

It is getting more and more difficult to support these official pre season matches... if the players themselves keep ruling themselves out, it is a signal to the NRL they have to be cancelled.

Ash Taylor as well.

Hopefully our withdrawals come through soon.

Instead of scrapping it they should at least try it at the end of season. Grand final week, with this and maybe a 9s comp during the week? NRL HQ would probably just say it would take away from the GF but I think it could only enhance GF week.
Might also have the flow on of stopping or reducing the issues with Mad Monday as it would give the players (& media) something else to focus on.

so Gagai is dual heritage? I did not know that all I've ever heard is his passion for his Indigenous heritage.
Maori pack is super strong even missing JWH, Indigenous pack is a real weakness

Barba out wighton will def be in
:(

With Daley saying he is going to give fergo time in the forwards it really worries me
1. How serious are the players taking this if they are short on positions

2. What kind of risks will the coaches take with the players, you would need to lose a player for more than half the season before the "hodgo compensation " kicks in

3. How serious are they going to train that week? We dont want samoa camp 2.0. Veggies need to be seen at dinner!

Do we know what the votes were? Johnson might have got more votes.

I don't think you need to worry about 3 at all. Wighton is a top trainer.

'Fan voting for the two sides that will take part in the Harvey Norman All Stars clash opened on Tuesday, with the NRL asking fans to have their say before coaches take that advice on board and select the two teams that will play for the Arthur Beetson Trophy"

As you said interesting coaches picks, makes me worried how professional the whole thing will be and the problems that could occur

I have to say I love this concept MUCH more than the original All-Stars format. I dunno, I just never could get behind the All-Stars team, and feel like Indigenous vs Maoris makes so much more sense.

Also interesting to see Garvey make the Indigenous team. Can't wait to see him have a breakout year this year, rub it in all our faces.

Thanks Zim. Be interesting to see if he actually gets much game time. Friend must be about 30 and does a heap of work so could possibly get a few spells this year. He (Friend) looked down on form last year but finished the season strongly.

If Friend stays fit I can't see him getting any.
Baptiste didn't get a whole lot last year even when Friend was down on form and Baptiste is built for that impact slot.

With Hodgson at the helm I don’t see how anything Garvey does could possibly be rubbing it in our face.
