|Welcome the site of the GB All Stars|
|The Great Britain All Stars idea was put together in September 2007.
The concept is for former players to get together and play exhibition games around the world to help raise money for Life for a Kid Foundation and amateur teams, whilst giving former players the chance to stay involved in Rugby League, keep fit and meet up with old friends.
The first fixture for the All Stars was played as a Curtain Raiser for the Paul Sculthorpe Testimonial game on Saturday 2nd February 2008 at The GPW Recruitment Stadium. On this occasion the teams were split into Yorkshire All Stars Vs Lancashire All Stars. The game was a big success with stars such as Tommy Martyn, Steve Prescott, Gary Connolly, Paul Newlove and Lee Jackson showing they hadn't lost their skills. The GB All Stars played further games in 2008 resulting in victories over FC Irregulars, Leigh Leythers and Thornhill Trojans.
The Great Britain Rugby League All Stars started off their 2009 campaign by taking on the St.Helens team of 1996 in a curtain raiser to the Paul Wellens Testimonial game. The All stars lost star players Gary Connolly, Paul Newlove, and Tommy Martyn to the saint's team and unfortunately also lost their unbeaten record.
