    2013 NRL All Stars & Indigenous All Stars Teams

    You know the NRL season is just around the corner when the All Star teams are named and this year is no different. With the NRL All Star match kicking off on February 9 at Suncorp Stadium, check out the sides that have been named below and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

    During the week there was a bit of controversy as the Roosters signing of Michael Jennings from the Panthers caused a reshuffle to the NRL All Stars side. Jennings led the tally but as he was no longer eligible Tim Grant got the call up for the Panthers, this meant that Jared Warea-Hargreaves missed out as the NRL All Stars had too many forwards. Shaun Kenny-Dowall replaced Warea-Hargreaves as the Roosters representative.

    The NRL All Stars have a number of debutants, but their calibre is not in question with Billy Slater, James Tamou, Tim Grant, Willie Mason and Adam Reynolds getting their first call up to the squad. Despite getting the most votes for the NRL All Stars side, Jarryd Hayne misses out on the starting side and has been named 18th man, his versatility working against him on this occasion.

    For the Indigenous All Stars, just Reece Robinson debuts for the side named to start the match, while Aidan Sezer, Joel Romelo, Jake Foster make their debuts from the bench. The Coaches selections are Dane Nielsen, Timana Tahu and Jack Wighton.
