The NRL Harvey Norman Women’s All Stars teams have been named today, ahead of the All Stars match to be played in Melbourne on Friday 15 February.
A host of NRL Premiership players are amongst both teams, together with players that have represented Australia and New Zealand.
NRL General Manager of the Women’s Elite Program, Tiffany Slater, said the match was a welcome return for women’s rugby league in 2019.
“Our women’s game had a landmark year in 2018, following the success of the Rugby League World Cup in 2017, where Australia took on New Zealand in the Final,” Ms Slater said.
“It’s great to see the All Stars concept back again in 2019 and looking at the talent across both teams, fans should be set for an exciting match.”
The Women’s All Stars match is part of a triple-header of football at AAMI Park, with touch football and the Men’s All Stars match also part of the action.
The Men’s and Women’s All Stars teams will be in Melbourne in the week leading up to the matches on 15 February, with teams taking part in a series of welcome events, community activities and training sessions.
Tickets are on sale, with NRL club member adult tickets starting at $20 and family passes from $45.
The NRL Harvey Norman All Stars is supported by the Victorian Government, through its tourism and major events agency, Visit Victoria.
