NRL – Penrith half Jamie Soward (pictured) says he couldn’t be more thrilled to be a member of the Indigenous All Stars  for Saturdays game at Lang Park.

Soward comes into the side replacing skipper Johnathon Thurston who withdrew from the side to allow himself to be fully for for the Cowboys World Club Challenge match against Leeds on the 21st of February.

Soward says its not just about playing with players you’d normally be opposing but also the opportunity to spend some time away from the field with the games greats.
