Rugby league fans are invited to become official selectors and pick their Indigenous All Stars team, which will take on the World All Stars in Newcastle early next year.

Online public voting for the Indigenous All Stars team is underway, with voting open until 3pm Friday, December 2 for fans to help select a 20-man squad.

A week-long event that celebrates rugby league's commitment to Indigenous Australia culminates in the Indigenous All Stars v World All Stars match, to be held in Newcastle on Friday, February 10, 2017.

Play your part by selecting the team that represents the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to take on the World All Stars.

The Indigenous All Stars will be out to prove themselves against a World Team consisting of a host of internationals.

The team was skippered by Queensland Maroons superstar Greg Inglis (pictured above) earlier this year.

Representing their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities, the Indigenous All Stars will play with plenty of pride and passion as they take the field in one of the most significant NRL Matches in the season calendar.

VOTING PROCESS

Fans are asked to vote from the short list of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players to form the team that will take on the World All Stars early in 2017.

Voting will be open for four weeks, beginning Monday, 10am, November 7 and will close 3pm Friday, December 2.

The team will then be announced in early December.
