The Harvey Norman NRL Women’s All Stars squads have been announced, ahead of the match in February 2019 in Melbourne.
A host of players from this year’s Test Match, Origin and Premiership have been named, including reigning Dally M Female Player of the Year, Brittany Breayley (for the New Zealand team) and the 2018 Australian Prime Minister’s XIII captain, Rebecca Young (for the Indigenous team).
NRL Indigenous Pathways Manager, Dean Widders said both teams were excited to be participating in the match.
“It was an incredible atmosphere and thrilling first-time win in Newcastle for the women’s Indigenous team back in 2017 and I know in speaking with the players that I’ve been in contact with, they can’t wait to represent their people in a jersey that means so much to them,” Mr Widders said.
“The All Stars matches have always been popular as part of the rugby league calendar and fans won’t be disappointed when the teams take to the field at AAMI Park in February next year.”
Tickets are on sale for the All Stars matches, with adult tickets from $20 and family passes from $50. Tickets are available at nrl.com/tickets.
