Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks says he feels privileged to be named in the 2015 NRL All Stars team to take on the Indigenous All Stars team on February 13.
The young halfback, who was recently named the 2014 Dally M of the Year, has been named to make his All Stars debut off the interchange bench, with Sea Eagles five-eighth Kieran Foran and Sydney Roosters halfback Mitchell Pearce also in the side.
The match between the NRL All Stars and the Indigenous All Stars will take place at the Gold Coast Titans' home ground, Cbus Super Stadium, on Friday, February 13.
"I didn't really expect to be making any sort of representative teams at all this year," admitted Brooks, "so it's a great priviledge and honor for me to be included.
"I've just seen the team and it's a really strong side, so I'm looking forward to getting out there and playing alongside some of the best players in the game."
NRL All Stars Coach Wayne Bennett said he was happy with the number of young players in the squad, which included the likes of Matt Moylan, Dylan Walker and Will Hopoate.
"We have some young guys [in the side] who proved themselves last season and have a fantastic career of them — combined with those [players] who have a strong representative background," said the Brisbane Broncos coach.
