NRL beat Indigenous All Stars 28-12

8:38 am on 13 February 2011

Any thoughts of the All Stars rugby leage game being regarded as an exhibition were buried by NRL All Stars halfback Benji Marshall who declared the annual clash as tough as a Test match after the ledger was squared in Australia last night.

The Indigenous side won the inaugural clash 12 months ago but the NRL All Stars were all business this time under champion coach Wayne Bennett and skipper Darren Lockyer, winning 28-12.

Neither side held anything back with blood spilled, players knocked out and put on report in a high-paced battle in front of more than 25,000 fans.
