NRL All-Stars Head Coach Wayne Bennett has a 64-man ‘shortlist’ from which the public will get a second change to pick 16 players (one from each Club).
They will join the squad’s two automatic selections as well as two remaining players selected by Bennett, which will form his overall 20-man squad, closer to kick-off.
Overview of NRL All Stars voting:
• The first player to be chosen in the NRL All Stars team will be the player who scores the highest number of overall votes in a position.
• Once a player from one club is placed in the team, no other player from that club can be selected.
• If a player withdraws from the team due to injury, he will be replaced by someone from the bench.
• The open bench spot will then be replaced by someone from the injured player’s club, depending on the position needed for the bench.
