Marshall eyes All Black jersey
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.
