Mbye to start for World All Stars
Both the World All Stars and Indigenous All Stars line-ups have been finalised, with Moses Mbye set to start in tomorrow night's match.
Mbye will now start at halfback for the World All Stars side after originally being named on the interchange bench. The Bulldogs number seven will partner Tigers’ young gun, Mitch Moses in the halves.
Mbye, will represent his Gambian heritage during the All Stars, as well as rub shoulders with some of the game’s elite players.
“The calibre of players that I am playing alongside on Friday night is unbelievable. It’s a good opportunity for myself to rub shoulders with some world class players and be coached by Mal Meninga,” Mbye said.
