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.

Anonymous says: Wow just wow Benji has put soo much into his career (06/03/2016)

Ernie ball says: How can anyone be critical of this guy.when we look at his history of injuries and comebacks and has the ability to go round again in 2018. In my opinion of 70yrs.watching our great game I have not seen a more consistent or fairer and cleaner player.whenever he hangs up his boots he will go down as one of our really great all round players. Thanks Benji. (18/09/2017)

Flvr says: Extraordinarily gifted five-eighth who could fill volumns of dvds with his highlight reel plays. Most deceptive sleight of hand, and devasting sidestep and fakes in the history of the game.
Honestly if Benji doesnt exist all of NZs competion victories (Tri-Nations, World Cup, four nations etc) wouldnt have happened and the West Tigers dont win their 2005 premiership. Watching the sheer amount of wizardry in his highlight reels on you tube makes all other playmakers highlight reels look ordinary which is a testament to his skill set and his true standing in the game. Immortal in waiting surely. (15/10/2017)
