The Harvey Norman All Stars heads to New Zealand for the first time with Rotorua International Stadium set to host the Māori and Indigenous All Stars sides on February 11.
Last year's men's All Stars game saw the Māori All Stars record a hard-fought 16-10 victory while the Indigenous All Stars enjoyed an 18-8 win in the women's match at CommBank Stadium.
From the pre-game hakas and cultural dances to the exhilarating on-field action, All Stars is the perfect way to kick off the 2023 rugby league season.

In support of the Auckland floods, for every scanned ticket at the NRL Harvey Norman All Stars event, the NRL, Harvey Norman New Zealand and Nine Network will each donate $1 for every fan in attendance towards the Flood Relief fund.
