Rabbitohs superstar Greg Inglis holds a narrow lead in the Indigenous All Stars voting while teammate Nathan Merritt also sits in the top ten.


Already in 10 days a combined total of more 12,000 fans have registered their selections at www.nrl.com/allstars ahead of voting closing on January 14 for the 16 prized public-chosen spots in the 20-man squads for both teams for the fourth annual All Stars match to be played at Suncorp Stadium on February 9.


With only one player from each club eligible for Wayne Bennetts NRL All Stars, Slaters All Stars debut hopes rest heavily with his Storm, Queensland and Australian team-mate Cronk, who is locked in a tight battle with the Rabbitohs Adam Reynolds for halfback. Because Slater has more votes overall than Cronk, he currently has the edge for the one Storm spot chosen by the public.


While Slater leads the voting for fullback, Eels star fullback Jarryd Hayne is the most popular NRL All Stars player overall (his votes are spread across the fullback, wing, centre and bench positions). Less than 200 votes separates Hayne from James Tamou (Cowboys), Brett Morris (Dragons) and Paul Gallen (Sharks).


Likewise, voting for the Indigenous All Stars is also very tight, with just 40 votes separating Greg Inglis (Rabbitohs), Greg Bird (Titans) and Ben Barba (Bulldogs). Fans can choose from all of Rugby Leagues best Indigenous talent for Laurie Daleys Indigenous All Stars.
