Biography

Hardy Balmain forward played for NSW against France and Queensland in 1955. Marsh won an award for being the best player in Sydney football that year and after moving to Cootamundra as captain-coach in 1956, gained selection with the 1956-57 Kangaroos. Marsh played in Tests against Great Britain and France on the tour but returned to Balmain in 1957 and represented Australia in the historic World Cup win. In 1958 Marsh was in the front row in the Australian Test team in all three Tests against the Ashes-winning Great Britain team.
