Big Sharks representation at All Stars

The Sharks will have the highest representation of any club at the All-Stars game on February 12, with seven players from the NRL squad and three from the Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership team selected for the matches to be played at CommBank Stadium in Parramatta.

Andrew Fifita returns for his seventh All Stars game, Jesse Ramien his third, while the pair will be joined in the Indigenous squad by debutants Nicho Hynes, Will Kennedy and Braydon Trindall.

For the Māori All Stars, Briton Nikora will represent his heritage and culture for the third time in this NRL showcase event, with Royce Hunt to play his first All Stars game.

“I couldn’t be happier for all the guys who get picked to go and represent themselves, the club and their culture. It’s a big moment for them,” Sharks coach Craig Fitzgibbon told the Sydney Morning Herald.

The match presents an exciting opportunity for newcomers Hynes, Kennedy, Trindall and Hunt, while for Fifita the All Stars will be his first game since suffering a serious throat injury late in the 2021 season.

Indigenous Coach Laurie Daley was one who was positive about Fifita’s inclusion.

″He brings a lot of good leadership and is always passionate about what he does. It’s a big ask coming back from the injury he has, but he’d be up for it,” Daley said.

In addition, Sharks Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership squad members Quincy Dodd, Corban Baxter and Kennedy Cherrington have been named for the Women’s match.

All NSW Origin stars, Dodd will play for the Indigenous, Baxter and Kennedy for the Māori, in what will be a welcome hit out ahead of the start of their NRLW seasons.

Baxter has been chosen as the Māori captain.

The matches will be the first major rugby league event of the 2022 calendar and just the second All Stars played in NSW.
