NRL All Stars Game Returns to Gold Coast this February

The NRL All Stars will return to Cbus Super Stadium in Gold Coast on Saturday 22nd February 2020. This will be the ninth time the NRL All Stars game has taken place with the first event happening back in 2010 (which was also held in Gold Coast). 
For the second year running, fans will be treated to a double header as both the male and female Indigenous and Maori teams will play back to back in Gold Coast. 

History of the Inaugural Indigenous All Stars Game
The first NRL All Stars match was played on 13 February 2010 at Skilled Park in Gold Coast. The All Stars concept is seen as a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the game as well as the players which make up the teams we cherish and support. Some of the best players in the game come from an Indigenous or Maori heritage. This makes for a fantastic opportunity to celebrate their remarkable contributions to Rugby League.

How are NRL All Stars selected?
The NRL All Stars are primarily chosen by the fans. Rugby league fans can have their say on who they believe should be involved in the event. Once voting closes, both team coaches make a final squad section to make up their respective teams. Each team will have a full 20-player roster on the day. This is a great way to get the fans involved in the selection of who they want to see represent each side.


Previous NRL All Star Matchups:
In the 2019 All Stars game, Addo-Carr starred for the Men’s Indigenous team as they beat the New Zealand Maori side 34-14 in Melbourne’s AAMI Park. The matchup was a battle of speed versus power where speed was the clear winner. The Indigenous side took advantage of their pace with most tries being scored in the corners. 

On the other hand, the Maori Women’s team edged out the Indigenous Women’s team 8-4. Tyler Birch opened the scoring for the Maori side before Shakiah Tungai helped the Indigenous side draw level. Krystal Rota scored the eventual match winning try on the 54th minute. It was a hard-fought battle for both teams. Fans should be excited for the rematch this year with both teams looking to kick-start the NRL season in style. 

Sky Subscribers can watch all the action live on Sky Sport 4 on Saturday 22nd February.
