NRL All Stars win thriller

The NRL All Stars have claimed the Arthur Beetson Trophy with a 36-28 win over the Indigenous All Stars in a scintillating clash at Skilled Park on Saturday.

Wayne Bennett's side outscored Laurie Daley's men by six tries to five, in a match played at breakneck speed throughout.

Despite the new season being a month away, both sets of players showed some flashes of brilliance to light up the third annual clash between the two sides on the Gold Coast.

However, an ankle injury to Greg Inglis cast a shadow over the match, with the Queensland and Australia centre limping out of the game 10 minutes from time.

Stirring Aboriginal and English versions of Advance Australia Fair were sung before the game with the Indigenous side then marching up to their opponents as a part of a traditional war dance with spears.
