"The NRL has opted to play the women’s All Stars game as the curtain-raiser, bumping the 16s match to Thursday night at Newcastle’s No. 2 Sportsground."

Apparently due to the contractual agreement with Hunter Stadium that stipulates only one lead-up match can be played prior to the All Stars on February 10.

We may well miss seeing some top future players and they miss out on mixing with the "stars".
