Jared Waerea-Hargreaves’ potential Super League move in doubt after All Star announcement

The NRL have announced their All Star side and the game will be stacked with some of the best talent that was on show at the World Cup from 2022.

This will be an incredible match up games very best star in the game that’s set to take place at Rotorua International Stadium on February 11th.

The game sees the Maori selected side face off with the Indigenous side and the player calibre is incredible.

Recently in the news for his controversial podcast comments over his head coach, Selwyn Cobbo will feature for the Indigenous All Stars.

Alongside him will also be World Cup stars Latrell Mitchell and Josh Addo-Carr who top scored at the World Cup with an incredible 12 tries.

As for the Māori side the Kiwi star Joseph Manu will feature alongside the likes of reported Leigh Leopard’s target, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves.

Waerea-Hargreaves has been heavily touted as making the switch to Super League but being honoured in such a major game ahead of the NRL season could help sway him to remain in the NRL.

The 34-year-old veteran has featured 33 times for New Zealand and over 250 times for Sydney Roosters but a potential retirement to Super League had been suggested.

With his inclusion in this squad it could throw any potential move into jeopardy.

The NRLW will also be represented with the Harvey Norman Women’s All Stars featuring Māori players set to take on an Indigenous team with both side again being stacked with World Cup talent.

The two games will play on the same day as the NRL’s way to kick off the pre-season.
