    Auckland - Benji Marshall is to join Super Rugby side the Blues as early as Tuesday and has set his sights on an All Blacks jersey in time for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

    Marshall met with Blues coach John Kirwan, chief executive Andy Dalton, new chairperson Tony Carter, stakeholder Murray Bolton and Auckland Rugby Union chairman Glenn Wahlstrom on Friday. Marshall returned to Sydney on Friday but Tauber stayed until Sunday to meet with incumbent and potential sponsors.

    "We're comfortable and confident in the presentation (Blues officials) made,'' Tauber said.

    The Tigers have lost four matches in a row, while Marshall's form has been poor through their lean run. Marshall will hope to focus on the final five matches in his NRL career, beginning with a clash against Parramatta on Friday.
