Biography

Boom youngster, born in NZ but technically a G’Coast junior (Nerang), made his first grade debut in 2003 whilst studying for his HSC. Marshall showed his potential as a centre/five-eighth but a shoulder injury prematurely ended his 2004 season. Although he injured his other shoulder in a pre-season trial in 2005 he made his Test debut in the 32-16 loss to Australia in April. Marshall’s blistering speed, deceptive step and uncanny ball skills inspired the W’Tigers into the grand final and his piece of ‘Benji magic’ which resulted in a try to winger Pat Richards was the turning point of the match. Marshall was on the interchange bench for NZ in the 50-12 loss to Australia in May but popped his right shoulder for a second time and missed most of the season.
