How to watch the NRL All Stars: Indigenous vs Maori live and free
The Indigenous side proved far too strong for their Maori counterparts 12 months ago. Will it be a similar result this time?
An All Stars match has been held since 2010 in various forms. Last season the concept of an Indigenous vs Maori showdown was introduced for the first time. The Indigenous side ran out comfortable 34-14 victors so the Maori team will surely be intent on making it far more competitive this year.
When is the NRL All Stars match?
Kick-off between the Indigenous and Maori All Stars is at 7:10pm local time (8:10pm AEDT) on Saturday 22 February at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast. There is also a curtain-raiser, with the Indigenous Women's All Stars vs New Zealand Maori Ferns kicking off at 5:10pm AEDT. On Sunday there's also the World Club Chalenge.

Who will win the NRL All Stars match?
We expect the Maori side to hit back hard and be far more competitive following their 7-tries-to-3 hammering in 2019. But taking a look at the two sides, it's hard not to lean towards another victory for the Indigenous line-up in this one.
