Lachie Weller will play alongside some of the best players in the competition in just over a week after earning selection in the All Stars State of Origin team.
The 27-man team will take on a Victorian side in a charity match for Bushfire Relief on Friday February 28 at Marvel Stadium.
Weller said it was humbling to get the call-up for the blockbuster match.
“It’s obviously a massive honour,” Weller told SUNS Media.
“I’ll probably be starstruck when I get down there but having Stuey around will be good.
“I can’t wait to get down there and have a game.”
SUNS Senior Coach Stuart Dew will serve as an assistant under All Stars coach John Longmire, which Weller says will make him feel more comfortable to have a familiar face guiding him.
“Stuey’s an assistant coach so hopefully he helps me out and plays me where I want to play,” Weller joked.
“I’m just pumped to be a part of it so any position.”
Weller will also get the chance to line up with some former Fremantle teammates.
“(It will be good to see) a couple of my old teammates from Freo – Lachie Neale, Fyfey and Sonny Walters and Brad Hill,” Weller said.
“It will be good to get down there and play with them again.”
