The growth of rugby league in Melbourne received another boost after it was announced the "sporting capital of Australia" has secured major events over a seven year-period.

The deal will see Origin return to Melbourne in 2021 and 2025, in addition the Kangaroos will play two tests in 2022 and 2023. 

However before these events take place, Melbourne will  reintroduce the All-Stars concept next year. 

Although, it will NOT be the same concept as in previous editions.

According to Triple M and The Australian's Brent Read, the Indigenous side will remain but their opponents will change for next year's return.
