“A local All Stars game is a concept that has been discussed for a number of years and to kick-off our 2017 season with this event is extremely exciting,” said Newcastle Rugby League CEO Matt Harris.
“I would like to acknowledge the involvement of Adam Bettridge and Ashley Gordon and also thank our clubs and their players whose support for this event is critical to its success.
