Harrison replaces Taylor in NRL All Stars
08:46 AEST Fri Jan 18 2013

Gold Coast back-rower Ashley Harrison has been called into the NRL All Stars side to replace injured Titans teammate David Taylor for the pre-season clash against the Indigenous All Stars next month in Brisbane.

Titans medical staff withdrew Taylor from the exhibition match at Suncorp Stadium on February 9 due to an ongoing Achilles injury.

Taylor, recruited from South Sydney for the 2013 season, hasn't played for the Gold Coast yet but was named in the All Stars on Wednesday as the highest ranking Titans player voted for by fans.

He finished narrowly ahead of fellow Queensland State of Origin player Nate Myles, who was also withdrawn this week as he recovers from recent elbow surgery.

Harrison was chosen by All Stars coach Wayne Bennett as the replacement, with the Queensland Origin forward to make his second appearance in the side.

"It's obviously disappointing for the guys that aren't available, but I'm really excited to be involved with the All Stars again," Harrison said.

"It's a great concept and a really enjoyable week so I'm proud to receive the call-up."
