THREE Port Adelaide players have been named in the initial squad for the 2013 Indigenous All-Stars team to play Richmond during the pre-season.

2012 NAB AFL Rising Star nominee Chad Wingard, Brendon Ah Chee and Jake Neade have been selected in the 40-man squad from which a final team will be chosen prior to the February 8 game in Alice Springs against the Tigers.

The side will be captained by Sydney premiership player Michael O'Loughlin, with assistance from former Fremantle Docker Roger Hayden, Adam Goodes (Sydney) and Shaun Burgoyne (Hawthorn).

Wingard, Ah Chee, Neade and the rest of the initial squad will be in Alice Springs as part of an AFL Players Association camp which brings together all 67 members of the league's indigenous playing contingent.

The Indigenous All-Stars match is proudly supported by the Northern Territory Government and is part of the Coles AFL Indigenous program.
