The NRL Harvey Norman All Stars men’s and women’s matches will take place this Saturday 20 February at Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville. It will be the 10th All Stars contest, since its inception in 2010.
It will be the first time the contest has been played in Townsville, having previously travelled to Gold Coast, Brisbane, Newcastle and Melbourne.
The NRL has confirmed replacements for the men’s Harvey Norman All Stars teams following the forced withdrawal of Melbourne-based players.
Corey Thompson (Gold Coast Titans) has replaced Josh Addo-Carr in the Indigenous All Stars squad.
Russell Packer (Wests Tigers), Esan Marsters, Daejarn Asi and Emry Pere (North Queensland Cowboys), Issac Luke (Brisbane Broncos) and Jackson Topine (Bulldogs) have replaced Reimis Smith, Jahrome Hughes, Jesse Bromwich, Brandon Smith, Kenneath Bromwich and Nelson Asofa-Solomona.
North Queensland Cowboys player Wiremu Greig has joined the Maori All Stars squad following the late withdrawal of Canberra Raiders player Bailey Simonsson.
Simonsson was ruled out of the Harvey Norman NRL All Stars contest today due to a minor leg injury.
Greig will wear jersey number 22.
