Voting open for Indigenous v Maori All Stars game

Rugby league fans are spoilt for choice when it comes to voting options for who they want to see in action in the 2020 Indigenous v Maori All Stars fixture on February 22.
The match returns to the Gold Coast's Cbus Super Stadium for the first time since 2015 and for the second year running the format will feature men's and women's Indigenous teams taking on their New Zealand Maori counterparts.

Voting is open for fans to have their say on who should feature in the men's fixture, with Indigenous coach Laurie Daley and Maori coach David Kidwell to have final say in the make-up of the sides.

The halves are one of the areas where there will be several stars vying for the two berths in each team with the likes of Cody Walker, Tyrone Peachey, Jack Wighton, Ash Taylor and Connor Watson in contention for the Indigenous team while Benji Marshall, Kalyn Ponga, Kodi Nikorima and Dylan Brown among the playmaking candidates for the Maori line-up.

The Maori side will be hunting for revenge after being swamped 34-14 at AAMI Park earlier this year as an all-NSW three-quarter line of Josh Addo-Carr, Blake Ferguson, Latrell Mitchell and James Roberts ran amok.

The Maori Women edged out Indigenous Women 8-4 in the first match of the double-header.

"This is a great way for fans to have input into the selection of the All Stars teams," said the NRL's senior manager Indigenous strategy Mark Deweerd.

"It's a unique opportunity they don't get at any other time of the year and allows them to influence the way coaches think and the type of football they'd like to see played.

"Fans' preferred teams will be provided to both coaches who will use that to come up with the final squads of 20 based on the balance of players across the various positions."

Went to the game in Melbourne in Feb. Basically as a league match It was a waste of time & money although the teams meet & greet in Federation Square was great. Got to talk to players from all teams and it was a very friendly set up. We had a great time there.
The actual game & the way it was delivered was just a publicity stunt to get more indigenous kids into R L. Many fans of both sides were angry & quite a few left before half time.
