Wests Tigers forward Liam Fulton has today been named in the NRL All Stars team for the second Harvey Norman Rugby League All Stars match, to be played on February 12, at Skilled Park on the Gold Coast.

Fulton replaces team-mate Gareth Ellis, who has been ruled out of the match with a groin injury.

“It is disappointing for Gareth to be ruled out but I will make the most of my opportunity,” Fulton said today.

“The All Stars game was a great spectacle last season and I am really looking forward to playing alongside some of these elite players under coach Wayne Bennett. I’m very excited.”

The ‘Learn. Earn. Legend!’ Indigenous All Stars will name a replacement for injured Test forward Sam Thaiday later this week.
