Fien called into NRL All Stars squad

3:34 pm on 26 January 2012

The St George Illawarra and Kiwis utility Nathan Fien has been called into the National Rugby League All Stars squad as a replacement for Dragons team-mate Ben Hornby.

Hornby, who was named as one of Wayne Bennett's two squad selections, has been ruled out of next week's match against the Indigenous All Stars due to a thigh strain.

Bennett has requested more time to decide on a replacement for Cameron Smith, who is also out of the game due to a shoulder problem.
