The 2013 All Stars Match was the fourth of the annual representative exhibition matches played between the Indigenous All Stars and the NRL All Stars team which was held on the 9th of February 2013. Once again the players were selected through a voting scheme which over 40,000 fans polled their selections over the two online voting stages.[1] Final stage voting for both sides were closed on the midnight 14 January. After the success of the previous three events the match was moved from Gold Coast's Skilled Park to the larger capacity Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. The Indigenous All Stars won the match 32–6 to even the ledger with two wins from the four games played so far. Both Ben Barba and Reece Robinson became the first players to score a hat-trick in an All Stars match.

Teams[edit]

Benji Marshall (New Zealand captain) and Cameron Smith (Australian captain) were automatic selections for the NRL All Stars side whilst Johnathan Thurston was made captain and an automatic pick for his Indigenous side. After the 16 best voted players for each side were selected by their respective coaches, the coaches were then allowed to personally pick further players to complete their 20 man squads. An asterisk(*) next to a player's name represents debutants for their respective sides.
