The All Stars concept may have its detractors but the match always proves to be a spectacle and produce entertaining football. A chance to see Greg Inglis team up with James Roberts and Ben Barba is definitely worth the price of admission.
The new concept of having the Indigenous All Stars face the World All Stars doesn’t change the line-ups too much and expectations would again be a flair versus brawn encounter. James Graham, Tom Burgess, Kane Evans and Martin Taupau provide the bulk for the World team and for Indigenous Tyrone Peachey and Jack Wighton add more attacking danger coming off the bench.
Leading Indigenous affairs commentator Stan Grant has warned the NRL that scrapping the annual All Stars match would be “foolish and insulting”, and ARL Indigenous Council chairwoman Linda Burney has condemned the “clumsy” way a review into the concept was announced.
Grant also questioned the commitment of players who had withdrawn or declared themselves unavailable and said they needed to treat the match with greater respect if it was to survive.
NRL head of football Todd Greenberg, who is considered favourite for the vacant CEO’s job, told reporters after last weekend’s Nines that the future of the All Stars match would be reviewed to determine its place in the crowded season schedule.
t has been reported that last year’s match on the Gold Coast lost $500,000. As well, with nine members of the 20-man NRL All Stars team and five players selected in the Indigenous All Stars squad withdrawing, there are growing fears the concept is under threat.
Grant and Burney say the value of the All Stars game can’t be measured in monetary terms and must survive.
“This is not just about the football game, it is about everything else that goes with it,” Grant said. “It is about the community outreach, it is about reconciliation, raising awareness, it is about spiritual and cultural pride.
