Mal Meninga has pleaded for the future of the NRL All Stars match despite being forced to overlook big names like Cameron Smith, Sam Burgess and Jason Taumalolo.World All Stars coach Meninga refused to pick many involved in the recent Four Nations tournament because of fear of player burnout and a packed schedule over the next 12 months.While both he and Indigenous All Stars coach Laurie Daley have picked strong teams, headlined by Jarryd Hayne, Johnathan Thurston and Greg Inglis, for the February 10 exhibition match, a host of big names werent brought up at the selection table.The list of unavailable players also includes Cooper Cronk, Shaun Johnson, Aaron Woods, Matt Scott and Jesse Bromwich.With the 2017 World Cup on the horizon, and a season which includes the Auckland Nines, trans-Tasman Test and State of Origin, as well as the NRL season, Meninga said it was important to give the cream of the crop a break.Theyve played a lot of footy so we made sure that anyone who was involved in the Four Nations - for Australia, England, New Zealand or Scotland - we wouldnt be making them play. They needed a spell, Meninga said.The All Stars concept last year came into question because of concerns about scheduling and a large number of player withdrawals.Meninga did pick Jake Trbojevic and Jake Friend who were part of the Kangaroos squad but they were given the all clear because of limited game time during the Four Nations.The Indigenous All Stars have named several Kangaroos representatives including Inglis, Thurston and Sam Thaiday.Meninga said the game meant a lot to the indigenous people and pointed to the role rugby league played in reconciliation and addressing social issues.Its estimated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders make up three per cent of the population but are over-represented in rugby league, especially at NRL and representative level.According to the NRL, indigenous people account for nine per cent of grassroots players, 10 per of coaching staff, 12 per cent of NRL players, 21 per cent of State of Origin players and 29 per cent of Kangaroo and Jillaroos players.Its the whole psyche of us being inclusive, no matter what culture you are, what gender, what social background - thats what this game represents, Meninga said.Meninga said Semi Radradra was not considered because he is awaiting a court hearing to answer domestic violence charges.World All Stars: Jarryd Hayne, David Mead, Joseph Leilua, Konrad Hurrell, Nene Macdonald, Mitchell Moses, Adam Reynolds, Nate Myles, Jake Friend, Jordan McLean, Gavin Cooper, Bryce Cartwright, Jake Trbojevic.
