A frustrated Johnathon Thurston has called for an end to continued speculation over the future of the Indigenous All Stars match.

With an increasingly packed schedule, Thurston will potentially play 39 matches in 2017, culminating in a possible World Cup final berth on the second of December.

Thurston (pictured) says despite the heavy workload, the All Stars week does far too much good for the fixture to be dropped from the rugby league calendar.
